Holderlin

1991 RH41. Discovered 1991 Sept. 10 by F. Borngen at Tautenburg.

Named for the German poet Friedrich Hoolderlin (1770-1843), who lived mainly in the Swabian town Tubingen {see planet (1481)}. In 1795, he studied in Jena {see planet (526)} and there wrote some of his patriotic hymns. He is one of the most original and well-known representatives of German idealism. His philosophy and vision shaped much of the poetry of the German language and were not fully appreciated until the twentieth century. (M 33795)
