Friedrich Theodore Vischer
Wilhelm Waiblinger and Eduard Moerike were close friends while they were
students of theology at the seminary in Tuebingen. But the two young men were
markedly different in character, Waiblinger the talented, dashing romantic who,
already at the age of 17 could publish his first novel. Moerike was the retiring,
unruffled, unfulfilled would-be-poet. In spite of their closeness Moerike
understood the danger involved in such a friendship and later broke it off. Both
went separate ways, both became notable Swabian poets of their day. Waiblinger
died in Rome at the age of twenty five. Moerike lived to be seventy-one.

Friedrich Theodor Vischer and Eduard Moerike were close friends while preparing for
Church ministry in Tuebingen. He was a German novelist, poet, playwright, and writer
on the philosophy of art. Today, he is mainly remembered as the author of the novel
"Auch Einer", in which he developed the concept of Die Tücke des Objekts (the spite of
objects), a comic theory that inanimate objects conspire against humans.
