The papers in this volume deal with central aspects of Simon Dacha (TM)s complete poetic works. One focus is on intensive textual interpretations, which take up topical research issues and apply their methodology to selected texts by Dach. In the process, particular attention is paid to Dacha (TM)s Modern Latin poetry, which has hitherto been neglected by research. This volume opens up many texts for research for the first time. Dacha (TM)s pro-loco disputation, the invitation to his inaugural lecture and numerous poems in German and Latin are edited with commentaries. A second focus is on aspects of the history of the aftermath and reception of his works. This volume provides the most comprehensive academic study of Simon Dach yet published, and is the first to give an overall impression of his poetic works and his influence on later writers.
