  Friedrich Gottlieb Klopstock - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Klopstock was born at Quedlinburg, the eldest son of a lawyer, a man of sterling character and of a deeply religious mind.
Both in his birthplace and on the estate of Friedeburg on the Saale, which his father later rented, young Klopstock passed a happy childhood; and more attention having been given to his physical than to his mental development he grew up a strong healthy boy and was an excellent horseman.
At this juncture Klopstock received from Frederick V of Denmark, on the recommendation of his minister Count von Bernstorff (1712-1772), an invitation to settle at Copenhagen, with an annuity of 400 thalers, with a view to the completion of the Messias.

Friedrich Gottlieb Klopstock was born at Quedlinburg in Lower Saxony on July 2, 1724.
Though Klopstock was not the first to strike a passionately lyrical and religious note in modern German poetry, he, with the proud surety of a born genius, ennobled the new High German lyrical language and hexametric verse form with dignity, grandeur, lofty themes, and emotions.
From 1748 to 1750 Klopstock was a tutor in Langensalza.

KLOPSTOCK, FRIEDRICH GOTTLIEB [Klopstock, Friedrich Gottlieb], 1724-1803, German poet, important for his influence upon Goethe, the Göttingen poets, and the Sturm und Drang movement.
The poem has the merit of being the first major modern work by a distinctively German poet, but the poem as a whole is weak, for Klopstock's genius was lyrical rather than epic.
Klopstock also wrote a trilogy of dramas on the Germanic hero Hermann (1769, 1784, 1787).

 German Idealism [Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy]
The teleological and idealistic tendencies of Leibniz were strengthened through Pietism; Klopstock, Herder, Jacobi, Goethe, and Jean Paul, all betray in their works the Pietistic influence.
Klopstock and Wieland mark the turning-point toward idealsm.
However, their contemporary, Lessing, was the first representative of the movement to liberate himself completely from conventional theology and all that was arbitrary and external in German culture and find in the inner aesthetic and ethical development of the mind the ideal to be followed.

In their impulsive eagerness, many admirers would visit the scenes which Richardson had described or make a pilgrimage to those in which he had lived.
Characteristic, in this respect, is Klopstock’s longing to be personally acquainted with the author of Clarissa, and the touching episode of his young wife’s correspondence with a man upon whom, in her naïve enthusiasm, she looked as little less than a saintly painter of angelic figures.
But the popularity of Richardson was rooted in the love of all tender hearts, and, as is well known, tender hearts were then, and remained long afterwards, the majority in Germany.

 BookRags: Friedrich Gottlieb Klopstock Biography
Initially celebrated and then quickly forgotten, Friedrich Gottlieb Klopstock appeared on the arid scene of the mid eighteenth century as the great innovator of what was to become the modern literary tradition.
His early odes and the first three cantos of his epic Der Messias (1748-1773; translated in part as The Messiah, 1763) were greeted with a burst of enthusiasm by contemporaries, and Klopstock was recognized as the first major German writer since Martin Luther.
Klopstock was, however, soon left behind by the very developments he had inaugurated, and by the last quarter of the century times had changed so much that his works met with a lack of interest.

 Friedrich Gottlieb Klopstock
German poet, born at Quedlinburg on the 2nd of July 1724, the eldest son of a lawyer, a man of sterling character and of a deeply religious mind.
Gladly therefore he accepted in 1750 an invitation from Jakob Bodmer, the translator of Paradise Lost, to visit him in Zürich.
He was less suited for epic and dramatic representation; for, wrapped up in himself, a stranger to the outer world, without historical culture, and without even any interest in the events of his time, he was lacking in the art of plastic representation such as a great epic requires.

One is the recovery of the importance of Friedrich Gottlieb Klopstock for his contemporary readers and for the following generation.
Going beyond the familiar history of the impact that Klopstock’s Der Messias had, Lee reveals the importance of Klopstock’s odes and elegies for the development of a new German lyric sensibility, attested in the responses of Herder, Gerstenberg, Boie, and Schubart.
The second issue is how Klopstock became a model for Goethe and in particular how Klopstock’s lyrical experiments would reverberate in and through Goethe’s works as he was beginning to find his poetic voice in the early 1770s.

However for most contemporaries Klopstock's Messias was a "Christian Epic Poem" and not an expression "of the Humanitarian Ideals of the age".
We also know from letters that this Messias was sung in German, in a translation of Klopstock and Ebeling, as Klopstock wrote in a letter of May 22, 1776, of this performance: "Ebeling and I had made a German text...".
It was apparently given in the Klopstock/Ebelin translation, Herder being a admirer of Klopstock.
