German novelist, dramatist and poet.
He published several novels including Leonore Griebel (a story of marital conflict), Der begrabene Gott (about a poor maid from Paszków and her contrary husband) and Drei Nachte (set in Bystrzyca Kłodzka and thought to be autobiographical). In his works he often described the lives of the characters, mainly Silesian peasants and workers, as a dramatic search for God. He also wrote fairy tales and poetry. His most famous and successful work was the novel Der Heiligenhof about a Silesian farmer, his blind daughter, her love for a young man and the farmer's search for God.
He died on 11 September 1940 in Schreiberhau.
