Freudenleere, der#

Freudenleere, Der, name of an Eastern middle German poet meaning "deprived of joy" (possibly following the death of his patron); around 1280 wrote the farce "Der Wiener Meerfahrt", an early heurigen story directed against the ambitious Viennese patricians. In the play, the revellers ("die tumben Wienaere") experience their drunkenness as an increasingly stormy sea voyage (old satirical motif).

Edition in: H. A. Neunzig, Pegasus pichelt, 1968.
