Detlev von Liliencron, 1905
Liliencron Signature.gif

Baron Detlev von Liliencron born Friedrich Adolf Axel Detlev Liliencron [1] (June 3, 1844 Kiel - July, 1909) was a German lyric poet and novelist from Kiel, the son of Louis Freiherr von Liliencron and Adeline von Harten.

He entered the army and took part in the campaigns of 1866 and 1870-71, in both of which he was wounded. He retired with the rank of captain and spent some time in America, afterwards settling at Kellinghusen in Holstein, where he remained until 1887. After some time at Munich, he settled in Altona and later at Alt-Rahlstedt, now a part of Hamburg.

He first attracted attention by the volume of poems, Adjutantenritte und andere Gedichte (1883), which was followed by several unsuccessful dramas, a volume of short stories, Eine Sommerschlacht (1886), and a novel Breide Hummelsbüttel (1887).

Other collections of short stories appeared under the titles Unter flatternden Fahnen (1888). Der Mäcen (1889), Krieg und Frieden (1891); of lyric poetry in 1889, 1890 (Der Heidegänger und andere Gedichte), 1893, and 1903 (Bunte Beute). Interesting, too, is the humorous epic Poggfred (1896; 2nd ed. 1904).

Liliencron was one of the most eminent of German lyric poets of his time; his Adjutantenritte, with its fresh original style, broke with the well-worn literary conventions then prevalent which had been handed down from the middle of the century. Liliencron's work is, however, somewhat uneven, and he lacked the sustained power which makes a prose writer successful.

Liliencron's complete works have been published in 14 volumes (1904-1905); his Gedichte having been previously collected in four volumes under the titles Kampf und Spiele, Kämpfe und Ziele, "Nebel und Sonne and Bunte Beute (1897-1903).
