Happy Birthday, Karoline von Günderrode! Read about the concept of love in Karoline von Günderrode in our ECC.

Karoline von Günderrode was born on February 11, 1780. She was a German Romantic poet, writer and philosopher.

“For Günderrode, “love” describes the connection not only between individuals, but also between individuals and the cosmos. On Günderrode ’s account, the succession of individual entities that make up the world are manifestations of a unitary “idea” or “spirit” as it recreates itself in various forms until it achieves perfect identity between form and essence.”

– Anna Ezekiel, Love in Karoline von Günderrode (1780-1806)
