The Masterpieces and the History of Literature, Vol. 8 of 10 free pdf Excerpt from The Masterpieces and the History of Literature, Vol. 8 of 10: Analysis, Criticism, Character and Incident After the intellectual and religious stir of the Reformation, literature in Germany, instead of springing into new life and flourishing, as in England and France, became a dreary desert, slightly relieved by a few oases of little productiveness. The country was devastated with war and bloodshed- the princes, careless of letters, were competing for absolute power- the people, harassed and tax-ridden, were beaten into sullen silence. Pious souls turned in horror from the present evil world and expressed their longing for a better country in devout hymns. Learned men sought solace in peaceful studies. Those impelled to write imitated foreign works - English, French, Italian - or translated ancient classics. The German language, despised and neglected, became corrupt, and was then decked out with foreign phrases. Preachers interlarded their homely prose with Latin quotations, making what Leibnitz called "misch-masch." The most noted user of this medley was the eccentric popular preacher known as Abraham a Sancta Clara (1642-1700). Yet in the same century there appeared some signs of improvement. In imitation of the Italian academies, societies were formed for the culture of the mother tongue. The earliest of these literary unions was "The Palm Order," or "Fruit-bearing Society," formed at Weimar in 1617, and including several princes and noblemen.
