Below is a growing collection of Julius Segall’s writings in chronological order.
Note that in 1920 Julius Segall, published a volume of poetry, “Gedichte”, a book of German poetry now in the public domain, digitized, and freely downloadable.
More than the proud splendor of beauty
More than the great power of wealth
More than the all the world
More than the some gods’ whim
eases our bitter suffering.
A loose translation. Note the original is in three rhyming couplets.
The following set of poems were published in a paper called the Freidenker, or Free Thinker. Like the Turner movement (academic article), the culture of the paper and clubs and the pressures on German-Americans during WWI form the backdrop for this stage in Segall’s intellectual and creative life. Merrill in his biosketch discusses briefly this part of Segall’s life.
