Petra Wehmeyer asked (28th July) about M.-L. Gothein and a few other
German connections of Tagore. Of Gothein I have written down a brief
GOTHEIN, Marie-Louise (née Schröter)
12.9.1863 - 24.12.1931.
German Authoress interested in India. Daughter of Constantin Schröter,
Landesgerichtsrat in Breslau, and Hermine Auguste Leonhardy. From 1885
married with Eberhard Gothein (1853-1923), an economist and cultural
historian who worked as Professor d. Nationalökonomie at Technische
Hochschule Karlsruhe in 1884-90, at Bonn 1890-1905 and from 1905 at
Publications: Indische Garten.
- translated: Tagore, Gitanjali.
Sources: husband in N.D.B. 6, 1964, 654-656.
Helene Meyer-Frank had some relation (wife?) to Heinrich Meyer-Benfey
(d. 1945) who wrote a book about Tagore in 1922. Earlier the two had
translated together: Tagore, Das Opfer und andere Dramen. 1920.
The others are unknown to me
P.S. I have still to check details of their publications from library
catalogues etc. but at present there is no time for it.
I hope this helps
