Chapter Summary

This chapter presents an overview on the Daniel Heinsius as a leader on the way to the German cultural nation in area of conflict between Latin and national languages. It focuses on the Leiden professor Daniel Heinsius (1580-1655) who, although a famous poet in Latin and Greek, wrote Dutch vernacular verse as well. Heinsius is awarded to a different quality only in the context of Opitz's poetry reform, in which he served as a role model for the targeted improvement of German literature. Pagan-Christian mythological and religious were mixed by Heinsius. Opitz's confrontation with Heinsius ran into an environment that has similar traits in the Netherlands, both in Latin as well as in the country speaking reception. Prior to his stay in the Netherlands Opitz was familiar with Heinsius' Greek and Latin as well as country-language works that have significantly influenced him in his poetic creation.The original text of the chapter is in German.

Keywords: Opitz's poetry reform; Heinsius
