Abstract

The Baroque poet Andreas Tscherning, professor of poetics at the University of Rostock from 1644 to his death in 1659, published two collections of poetry in German: Deutscher Getichte Früling (1642, re-edited in 1646 and 1649) and Vortrab Des Sommers Deutscher Getichte (1655). In these collections, Tscherning uses occasional poems to establish himself as an eminent artist and scholar. He also hopes to improve his unsatisfactory academic standing by means of poetic arguments. The following essay outlines the subtle strategies of Tscherning’s poetic self-advertisement.
