German Communist writer and a member of the Communist Party of Germany (KPD) from 1929. Weinert started writing in 1921. From the very beginning his poems were thoroughly anti-imperialistic. In the second half of the 1920s, Weinert's work leaned towards portraying the struggles of the German proletariat. Weinert's works were always political, and the role of political poet, agitator, and satirist he gradually assumed are best seen in his collections Theater of the Apes (1925) and Erich Weinert Speaks (1930). He died on 20 April 1953 in Berlin, aged 62.
