Ernst Wilhelm Ackermann. Lettere dall’Italia di un giovane ‘io viaggiante’ (1844-46)

Marco Castellari


This paper analyzes Ernst Wilhelm Ackermann’s travel writing for the very first time. After a brief presentation of this virtually unknown German Vormärz-author, who died very young in 1846, some possible reasons for a repêchage of his poetry, fictional prose and other writings are proposed. The correspondence documenting his two journeys to South Europe – mostly letters to his father – and his fragmentary project Pictures from Italy and Greece are analyzed in detail in the third and largest part of the paper.
