1751, Dec 11795, Apr 20
a Swedish poet and critic. His strong satiric tendency led him into numerous controversies, the chief that with the critic Thomas Thorild, against whom he directed his satire Nytt försök till orimmad vers, where he also sneers at the "raving of Shakespeare" and "the convulsions of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe." His lack of humour detracts from the interest of his polemical writings. His poetical works are partly lyrical, partly dramatic; his plays are based on plots by Gustavus III. The songs interspersed in the four operas which they produced together are wholly the work of Kellgren.
