Hide Profile

Hugo von Hofmannsthal was a German author, known as perhaps the most important Austrian writer of his era. Born in Vienna to prosperous Jewish parents, he was educated by private tutors and studied law and philology at the University of Vienna. He showed a precocious gift for poetry, and became equally prolific writing drama, fiction, and essays. He was influenced by the Symbolist tradition, and his work was self-consciously aesthetic, but his writing was always infused with his concern for harmony. He wrote libretti for a number of Richard Strauss's operas, and adapted a 15th century morality play he retitled Jedermann, which was to become a staple of the Vienna Festival, which he co-founded.
