German critic, 1880-1958, author of Dichtung und Dichter der Zeit

Fishburn and Hughes: A German literary critic, author of Dichtung und Dichter der Zeit: Eine Schildung der deutschen Literatur des letzen Jahreszente (2 vols, Leipzig, 1911-28). In this panoramic study of German creative literature from about 1880, Sorgel traces the main influences, native and foreign, that have shaped German literature. Walt Whitman is mentioned several times and has a separate entry with a photograph (vol.1, 533-6), though his alleged comparison with the character David Jerusalem is of course apocryphal.
