German poet and playwright who developed his unique style in poetry and writing dramas during his years in Stuttgart from 1845. Early in life, he showed deep interest in nature and many of his poems show this influence. He excelled in popular songs and ballads, and in his love songs nobly idealized nature and passion. His 24 speeches on the occasion of the birthday of Schiller were especially popular.
As a poet, Fischer may be regarded as the last noteworthy representative of the traditional Swabian School. He was not in sympathy with the naturalism of his time, and was influenced chiefly by the poetry of his countryman Schiller, although several of his productions suggest the influence of Goethe, Hölderlin, and Mörike.
He worked as a school teacher, school master, professor and master professor.
Johann Georg Fischer was the father of noted lexicographer Hermann Fischer (1851-1920). He died on 4 May 1897 in Stuttgart at age 80.
