This survey of the life and achievement of Ernst Robert Curtius, an influential literary critic as well as a major scholar, was prompted by Heinrich Lausberg's biography Ernst Robert Curtius (1886-1956) and by the fortieth anniversary of Curtius's death. His study, European Literature and Latin Middle Ages, written mainly during the Third Reich, is a standard work. His writings on twentieth-century European writers (among them Proust, Gide, Joyce, Valéry, and Eliot) decisively conveyed their significance to the German reading public. A personal friend of many of these writers, he also encouraged rising poets, such as Stephen Spender.
