Theodor Däubler (17 August 1876 – 14 June 1934) was a poet and cultural critic in the German language. He was born in Trieste, then part of Austro-Hungary and has been described as "Trieste's most important German-speaking writer".
Early life and career
Däubler travelled widely throughout the Mediterranean and European countries. His major poem "Das Nordlicht" was first published in 1910. He was close to several participants in Berlin Dada, notably George Grosz and Hans Richter, on whom he wrote the first critical appraisal in Die Aktion. His influence on wider culture include Theodor Adorno in Minima Moralia (paragraph 122) and "Drei Gedichte von Theodor Däubler" song settings (Opus 8) and Carl Schmitt.
