was a German dramatist, novelist and critic born in Eisfeld in Thuringia. But ill health and constitutional shyness caused him to give up a musical career and he turned exclusively to literary studies, and wrote several stories and dramas. Of the latter, Der ErbfÃ¶rster (The Hereditary Forester) (1850) attracted immediate attention as a masterly psychological study. It was followed by Die MakkabÃ¤er (The Maccabees) (1852), in which the realistic method of Der ErbfÃ¶rster was transferred to an historical milieu, which allowed more brilliant coloring and a freer play of the imagination. With these tragedies, to which may be added Die Rechte des Herzens (The Rights of the Heart) and Das FrÃ¤ulein von Scuderi (The Lady of Scuderi), the comedy Hans Frey, and an unfinished tragedy on the subject of Agnes Bernauer, Ludwig ranks immediately after Christian Friedrich Hebbel as Germany's most notable dramatic poet at the middle of the 19th century.
