“Dichter-Quartett” is an undated German edition of “Authors.”  I’ve chosen Adelbert von Chamisso, for his contributions to botany, and for the creation of Peter Schlemihl.  The other authors in this canon are: Ludwig Uhland, Joseph Victor von Scheffel, Friedrich von Schiller, Friedrich Rückert, Shakespeare, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Heinrich Heine, Ernst von Wildenbruch, Emanuel Geibel, Theodor Körner, Christoph Martin Wieland, Gotthold Ephraim Lessing, Gustav Freytag, and Ferdinand Freiligrath.  It’s an interesting group, many unknown to me.  Shakespeare is the only English writer, and, for some reason, the only to rate single name billing.
