German-French writer, essayist and translator.
Schickele's most famous work is the novel trilogy 'Das Erbe am Rhein': 'Maria Capponi' (1925), 'Blick auf die Vogesen' (1927) and 'Der Wolf in der Hürde' (1931).
The son of a German vineyard owner and police officer and a French mother, he studied literature, history, science and philosophy (in Strasbourg, Munich, Paris and Berlin). Together with Otto Flake and Ernst Stadler he published several magazines as well as poetry. His work as a writer is characterized by tension between French and German culture in Alsace.
After the First World War, he moved to Badenweiler where he met Annette Kolb and Emil Bizer. At risk of being arrested by the Nazis, he emigrated to Sanary-sur-Mer in the South of France.
He died of heart failure on 31 January 1940 in Vence, a few months before the invasion of the German army.
