Julius Hammer (1810–1862)

Hammer, Julius (häm’mer). A German poet and prose-writer; born in Dresden, June 7, 1810; died at Pillnitz, Aug. 23, 1862. His comedy called ‘The Strange Breakfast’ (1834) was followed by a volume of lyric poetry under the title ‘Look About You, Look Within You’ (1851); and by ‘Learn, Live, Love,’ and other successful efforts. His novels show talent; but his reputation must rest upon his verse.
