Lenau Nicholas

The Austrian poet Nikolaus Lenau (1802-1850) was born in Csatád near Temesvar in Hungary.

After his father's death, his mother married a second time and moved with him to northern, mountainous Hungary.

Lenau lived here in the Tokaj region two years of his childhood.

The landscape deeply influenced him and his poetry. the Tokaj In his poem he paid tribute to "Mischka an der Tisza": "High the bottle in the left, high the saber in the right, and the throats through the throats, the sweet fire flow in the dance, flows the glorious Tokay."

Other poems by Lenau on the topic of wine are called "In the tavern" and "The lonely drinker" (see further sayings of many other well-known personalities in connection with wine and Weingenuss under Quotes ):

Oh, who wants to drink lonely, without speech, Rundgesang,
without sinking to the breast of a friend in the merry thirst?

I - the friends are so rare; without thinking the animal drinks
and I invite my guests from other worlds to me.

When thoughts are pouring in the wine, the mud is raging up in me,
like the Ganges holy waves, an elephant's choir clouds.

My shadow! Come on, you unsubstantial drinker!
Come on, swing my buddy the full shadow mug!

Faithful friend, be praised to me! Have often shown love to me,
I want to shine my heart proudly, you silently show me your limits.
