Emanuel Geibel was a German author, and one of the most popular poets of his day. A good technical poet, his most popular works were probably romantic poems of wanderlust; his verse was read and admired throughout Germany, by all classes of people. His popularity has decreased, however, perhaps due to the slight nature of his work.
