Christian August Gottlob Eberhard (1769–1845)

Eberhard, Christian August Gottlob (ā’ber-härd). A German poet and descriptive writer; born in Belzig, Jan. 12, 1769; died in Dresden, May 13, 1845. His verse is a reminiscence of the eighteenth-century style and of the school of Gleim, the idyl ‘Little Hans and the Cookie’ (1822) and ‘Various Poems’ (1833) eminently so. His best prose is in ‘Italy as It Impressed Me’ (1839).
