Karl Egon Ebert (1801–1882)

Ebert, Karl Egon (ā’bert). An Austrian poet and dramatist (1801–82); born at Prague. He began with dramas of Bohemian history, many of which were staged but only one printed, ‘Wratislav and Jutta’ (1835). His ‘Poems’ (1824) contain fine lyrics, and ‘Schwerting the Saxon Duke’ is still high in popular favor. His longer poems are: ‘Vlasta, a National Hero-Poem of Bohemia,’ and ‘The Monastery’; ‘A Monument to Karl Egon, Prince of Fürstenberg’; and ‘Devout Meditations of a Man of the World.’
