About this Item

1859. Engraved by C. Barth, 22 x 14 cm in passe-partout. - Meyers Konversations-Lexikon, No.636. Elisabeth Kulmann (5.jul./ 17. Juli 1808greg. in Sankt Petersburg; - 19. Novemberjul./ 1. Dezember 1825greg. in Sankt Petersburg) war eine deutsch-russische Dichterin. Elisabeth Kulmann war die Tochter eines russischen Offiziers und einer deutschen Mutter und wuchs mehrsprachig auf. lm Alter von sechs Jahren las und sprach sie fließend Russisch und Deutsch. Sie bekam bald Unterricht in weiteren Fremdsprachen und sprach dank ihrer Sprachbegabung neben ihren beiden Muttersprachen bald Englisch, Französisch, Spanisch, Italienisch, Portugiesisch und Neugriechisch. Außerdem verstand sie Latein, Altgriechisch und Kirchenslawisch. Neben zahlreichen Übersetzungen widmete sie sich eigenen Dichtungen, hier vor allem in ihren Lieblingssprachen Russisch, Deutsch und Italienisch. - Ende 1824 erkrankte Elisabeth Kulmann schwer und starb ein Jahr später im Alter von nur 17 Jahren in ihrer Heimatstadt.
