Morike

1994 PZ1. Discovered 1994 Aug. 4 by F. Borngen at Tautenburg.

Named for the Swabian poet Eduard Morike (18041875), one of the great German lyric poets. The wonders of nature were revealed to him everywhere, even in the smallest thing. More than 50 of his poems were set to music by Hugo Wolf {see planet (5177)}, notably "At midnight". His most beautiful work in prose is the short novel "Mozarts Reise nach Prag", written in a fluid, breathtaking style similar to Mozart's {see planet (1034)} music. (M 33795)
