Meandering, meandering, meandering we go . . .

Today is the birthday of Paul Johann Ludwig von Heyse (March 15, 1830 - April 2, 1914), novelist, dramatist and poet. He is best known for his short story L'Arrabbiata and his novel Kinder der Welt.

Paul von Heyse with the poet Emanuel Geibel, were the leaders of a Munich circle of writers, who sought to preserve traditional artistic values from the encroachments of political radicalism, materialism, and realism.

Paul von Heyse was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1910.
