Baggesen, Jens Emmanuel, born at Korsor, Denmark, in 1765, spent some years in roaming over France, Italy, Switzerland, and Germany, married a daughter of Haller, and was appointed professor in the University of Kiel. As a writer of light verse and of travels, both in Danish and German, he won much popularity, the best known of his books being Haidenblumen, Adam and Eve, The Labyrinth, and Travels in the Alps. His irritability and egotism, however, earned him many enmities. His death occurred in 1820.
