Abstract/Summary

This article examines the late poems of Johann Wilhelm Ludwig Gleim, arguing that they employ a 'late style.' I suggest that the poet deliberately stylises himself as an old, unfashionable author, in order to address political themes in his work that would not have appeared fashionable at the time.
