Droste-Hülshoff, Annette Von


(Anna Elisabeth von Droste-Hiilshoff). Born Jan. 10, 1797, in the village of Hiilshoff, near Munster; died May 24, 1848, in Meersburg. German writer, a member of the old Westphalian nobility.

Droste-Hulshoff was the author of several collections of lyric poetry, including Verses (1838), Heath Scenes (1841-42), and Mountains, Forests, and Sea (1841-42), and the religious verses The Spiritual Year (published 1851) and Last Gifts (published 1860). Her work idealizes patriarchal Germany. She wrote several works in the romantic style, including the dramas Bertha (1814) and Walther (1818) and the narrative poems Hotel on the Great St. Bernard (1830) and The Battle at Loerner Bruch (1837). In Westphalian Sketches (1845) she realistically depicted the ways of the peasantry.
