Meanwhile, Dietrich fights a grueling twelve-day battle outside Ravenna, defeating Ermenrich, who escapes. His treacherous advisor Sibeche, however, is captured by Eckehart, who ties him naked to a horse and leads him across the battlefield to avenge the death of the Harlungen at Sibeche's advice. As the dead are gathered to be buried, Ilsan arrives with news that Etzel's sons are missing.
The warrior Helpfrich then comes with news of their deaths. Dietrich finds their bodies on the seashore and breaks into despairing laments.
He recognizes that the wounds on the young warriors bodies could only have been made by Witege's sword Mimming. Witege is then spotted; Dietrich jumps on his horse to attack, but Witege flees on his horse Schemming.
Witege's uncle Rienolt, however, is also with him, and he turns to fight Dietrich and is slain. Dietrich pursues Witege to the edge of the sea and very nearly catches him, but Witege rides into the sea where he is rescued by the sea-spirit Wachilt identified by the Thidrekssaga as his great grandmother.
She tells him that Dietrich was so hot with anger that his armor was soft, and Witige could have easily defeated him. Now, however, the armor had hardened, and thirty Witiges could not defeat Dietrich. Dietrich meanwhile mourns on the shore. He goes back to Ravenna, where Ermenrich has fortified himself, and storms the city. Ermernich escapes, however, and Dietrich orders the city burned, as the inhabitants surrender.
Rüdiger rides back to Hunland to bring Etzel the news of his sons deaths; however, Orte and Scharpfe's horses arrive at Etzelburg with bloody saddles. Helche is beside herself, but Rüdiger is able to calm her. Etzel sees that his sons deaths are not Dietrich's fault, and Dietrich returns to Etzel's court and back into Etzel and Helche's good graces. Die Rabenschlacht is transmitted together with Dietrichs Flucht in four complete manuscripts and alone in one fragmentary manuscript: The origins of the earliest manuscripts as well as the dialect of the poem indicate that it was composed in Austria, sometime before As with almost all German heroic epic , Die Rabenschlacht is anonymous.
Die Rabenschlacht consists of unique stanzas, in a form that is not found in any other poem. The first line consists of three metrical feet before the caesura, then three additional feet; the second of three feet before the caesura, then four additional feet; and the third of three feet before the caesura, and five or even six additional feet. In some stanzas, the rhymes at the caesura in lines 1 and 2 are absent, giving a scheme: Die Rabenschlacht has been described as "elegiac" and "sentimental," particularly in relation to Dietrichs Flucht.
The poem makes numerous allusions to the Nibelungenlied, beginning with the opening stanza, which cites the opening stanza of the C version of the Nibelungenlied.
Siegfried is defeated by Dietrich and forced to plea for his life, confirming Dietrich's superiority. The general outline of the story told in Die Rabenschlacht , about the death of Etzel and Herche's sons, is often considered to be one of the oldest components of the legend of Theoderic. It is first alluded to in the Nibelungenklage , a poem likely written shortly after the Nibelungenlied c.
An alternative version of the events of the Rabenschlacht is found in the Thidrekssaga. There we are told that King Ermanrik was misled into attacking his nephew Didrik because of his counsellor Sifka Sibeche in Middle High German , who was avenging Ermanrik's rape of his wife by leading him to his doom.
Didrik goes into exile at Attila's court and makes an attempt to return to his kingdom with a Hunnish army, bringing along his brother Thether Diether and Attila's two sons Erp and Ortwin. The army fights a mighty battle against Ermanrik at Gronsport on the Mosel and defeats him. Didrik then returns to exile. Joachim Heinzle notes that it is unclear how much of the variation between the version found in Die Rabenschlacht and that found in the Thidrekssaga is the work of the latter's compiler or comes from alternative versions in oral circulation.
The goal of this group of literati and intellectuals who settled around in Friedrichshagen, like of may other groups of that type sprouting up at that time, was social reform German: Lebensreform that promoted a bohemian, "natural" way of life as a response to industrialization and urbanization, a world view of life reform basically containing a secularized Gnostic-eschatological salvation doctrine salvation through a "natural way of life" .
Although most of his work covers natural history topics, Bölsche was not a trained naturalist but a popularizer of natural science as a layperson to the general public. In he and Bruno Wille founded the " Freie Volksbühne ", which was intended as a workers' theater promoting the naturalist plays of the day. His friendship with the Hauptmann brothers, Gerhart Hauptmann and Carl, brought Bölsche to Schreiberhau in the Riesengebirge mountains, where he would spend the summer regularly, starting in , making his permanent residence there in He continued to devote himself to his literary work and his extensive correspondence until old age.
Wilhelm Bölsche was first married in Berlin in to Adele Bertelt , but they divorced in He remarried in in Cologne to Johanna Walther , a childhood friend sister of architect Julius Wilhelm Walther , daughter of civil engineer and later factory manager Wilhelm Heinrich Walther and Augusta Alwina te Kloot. Wilhelm Bölsche died in Schreiberhau on August 31, He was interred at the evangelical cemetery of Nieder-Schreiberhau in Dept.
