Achim (Ludwig Joachim) von Arnim (1781-1831) is one of the well-known German Romantics. Although he studied law and natural sciences, he dedicated his life to literature, especially German literature. With his friend Brentano {see planet (8054)} he published about 600 German folksongs in Des Knaben Wunderhorn. German poets from the "Heidelberger Romantik", such as the brothers Grimm, Tieck {see planet (8056)} and Runge, worked together with Arnim and Brentano. (M 34345)
