It was Adam Gottlob Ohlenschldger (q.v.; 1 7791850), the greatest poet of Denmark, who was to bring about the new romantic movement.
Under the immediate direction of Steffens, Ohlenschldger began an entirely new poetic style, and destroyed all his earlier verses.
The old Scandinavian mythology lived in the hands of Ohlenschldger exactly as the classical Greek religion was born again in Keats.
Nikolai Frederik Severin Grundtvig (q.v.; 1783-1872), like Ohlenschldger, learned the principles of the German romanticism from the lips of Steffens.
But the master misunderstood the disciple; and the harsh repulse of Ohlenschldger silenced Hauch for many years.
