I'll say Goethe but without any great confidence

No, Goethe was still writing indecipherable rubbish until the 1830s

Not Schiller either. He died in 1805.

Ian, the protocol is that you set a question once you have got the previous question correct and have been passed the baton from the previous question setter

Is this Heinrich von Kleist?

He and his girlfriend convinced themselves that he should shoot her and then himself.
Kleist also wrote one of the killer opening lines in world literature

The 'Marquise of O' or the one about the young Spaniard about to hang himself in Santiago jail? The former has a ring of Alan Bennett about it :D
