Hugo von Hofmannsthal
Hugo Laurenz August Hofmann von Hofmannsthal (1 February 1874 – 15 July 1929) was an Austrian poet, dramatist, and essayist.
He had partial Italian and Jewish ancestry and married a Jewish convert to Christianity.
He was a conservative. In 1927, he made a famous speech that stated that “The process of which I am speaking is nothing less than a conservative revolution on such a scale as the history of Europe has never known." This is stated to have popularized the phrase the “Conservative Revolution” in the context of the Conservative Revolutionary movement.
