Robert Roberthin

[Robert Roberthin was a layman high in office under the Elector of Brandenburg, and able from his position occasionally to protect and assist his friends. He was also a personal friend of Opitz, and was the first to introduce the new Silesian style of verse into the more barbarous Prussia.]

Of Roberthin we give a specimen of a different style, earnest and sensible, but more commonplace in expression and less fervent than Dach.
