Jakob van Hoddis

Memorial plaque, Hackesche Höfe, Berlin

Jakob van Hoddis (16 May 1887 – May/June 1942) was the pen name of the Jewish German expressionist poet Hans Davidsohn, of which "Van Hoddis" is an anagram. His most famous poem ''Weltende'' (''End of the world''), published on 11 January 1911 in the ''Der Demokrat'' magazine, is generally regarded as ushering in the Expressionist style of poetry and inspired many other poets to write in a similarly grotesque style; he is also seen as perhaps the only German predecessor of surrealism (which did not exist as a movement in Germany).
