Definitions of HERMANN CONRADI
Sort: Oldest first
A German literary critic and essayist (1862-90); born at Jetznitz. As lyrist and critic he was a representative of radical realism, a follower of Tolstoy, Ibsen, and Nietzsche. His genius was forceful, but undisciplined, and his writings lack repose and polish. With his too radical story of "Adam Man" (1889) he incurred the penalties of the law against publications that offend morality.
