"and Benn"

 Gottfried Benn (1886-1956) was a German poet, novelist and essayist.  Like many others, he also earned a doctorate in medicine before turning to a career in writing.  He served during WW1, and was already a published poet.  In the early 1930s he was sympathetic to the ideas of the rising Nazi party, but by the end of the decade his vocal unhappiness with the regime had led to the party banning him from writing. Despite this, he did continue to write through WW2, and in 1951 he was awarded the Georg Büchner Prize.
