Das Auge Gottes by Friedrich Halm (Unpublished Works of Friedrich Halm 2) (German Edition)
Halm's high reputation during his lifetime is indicated by the stone bust which was carved of him and which still sits on top of the famous Burgtheater in Vienna, alongside those of Schiller, Goethe and Grillparzer. From an early age, Halm showed an aptitude for fictional narrative, perhaps first exemplified in the charming tale, Die Abendgenossen , written when Halm was in his early twenties. Another early novella from this period, Ein Abend zu L , contains insights on sex and homosexuality which anticipate Freudian psycho-analytical notions.

Friedrich Halm - Wikipedia
His novella, Die Marzipan-Lise "Marzipan Lise" , is credited with being one of the first "criminal fiction tales" of German literature and is now available as an audio book on CD. Furthermore, the composer, Brahms, used some of Halm's verse as the basis for a number of his Lieder. His novellas mark Halm out as a writer of talent, psychological penetration and substance.
His novella, The House at Verona Bridge Das Haus an der Veronabruecke alone stands as a milestone in 19th-century Austrian literature for its probing and insightful treatment of an obsessive mentality that inevitably leads its possessor into tragedy and death. His collected works, Samtliche Werke , were published arranged in chronological order in eight volumes — , to which four posthumous volumes were added in Schlossar in 4 vols.
Freiherr was a title before , but now is regarded as part of the surname. It is translated as Baron.

Friedrich Halm's earliest full-length drama, Schwert, Hammer, Buch , completed in but never published, explores three various routes in quest of happiness: This massive drama of several hundred pages, although still a piece of ' juvenilia ', has numerous effective passages and anticipates the literary talent that was to burst upon the Viennese literary scene just three or four years later with the publication of Halm's tragedy, Griseldis.
Of his many dramatic works the best known are, indeed, Griseldis ; Der Adept ; publ. Griseldis is based on the well-known story of the faithful wife whose loyalty and devotion are put to the severest tests but who triumphs in the end.

Der Sohn der Wildnis "The Son of the Wilderness" is a romantic drama depicting the power of womanly love and virtue over rude barbarian strength. It was presented on the English stage under the title of Ingomar the Barbarian. Der Fechter von Ravenna "The Gladiator of Ravenna" , regarded as one of Halm's best dramas, is a tragedy having for its hero Thumelicus the son of Arminius, the liberator of Germany from Roman rule.
All of these are distinguished by elegance of language, melodious versification and clever construction, and were for a time exceedingly popular. Theatrically these plays are very effective, but the characters are improbable and the situations are often strained. Their popularity, which they owe largely to their smooth, polished and beautiful diction and skillfully interspersed lyrics, has not been lasting.
Of Halm's numerous other dramas we may mention the vivid and powerful Sampiero , depicting the tragic loss of humanity attendant upon political fanaticism ; Iphigenie in Delphi ; Begum Somru ; Wildfeuer ; a German version of Shakespeare 's Cymbeline that appeared on the stage in , and an extremely effective and humorous comedy entitled Verbot und Befehl "Prohibition and Decree", He is also the author of lyrics, short stories, and of a narrative poem Charfreitag "Good Friday" His poems, Gedichte , were published in Stuttgart , new ed.
His pessimistic weltanschauung seems to have been formed very early on in life and never to have deserted him, as evidenced by early poems such as 'Eine Makame' and later poems, 'Schwere Jahre', where life is seen as essentially a vale of tears and filled with suffering, and only made bearable by the hope of a blissful and tranquil life of the spirit which will supervene after physical death.
