Epic Poems and Didactic Poetry in the Seventeenth Century (Martin Opitz and Georg Greflinger)

image of Daphnis

In epic poems of the seventeenth century written in German about the Thirty Years’ War, knowledge is set in motion, especially in the context of genre change and shifts in the generic tradition as well as in the conflictive area between fiction and non-fiction. The generic adjustments are partially caused by the transfer of a Greek and Latin genre model into German. This is illustrated by two examples, Martin Opitz’s Trost-Getichte in Widerwärtigkeit des Krieges, first published in 1633, and Georg Greflingerʼs Der Deutschen Dreißig-Jähriger Krieg, published in 1657.
