Richard Dehmel

Dehmel, Richard (rĭkhˈärt dāˈməl) [key], 1863–1920, German poet. An ardent mountain climber and soldier, he expressed his restless temperament in passionate and impressionistic poetry. His verse, often dealing with social problems, represents a revolt against extreme naturalism. Among his works are the poetic collection Erlösungen [redemptions] (1891) and the verse novel Zwei Menschen [two human beings] (1903).
