CHRISTIAN AUGUST GOTTLOB EBERHARD (1769-1845), German miscellaneous writer, was born at Belzig, near Witten-berg, on the 12th of January 1769. He studied theology at Leipzig; but, a story he contributed to a periodical having proved successful, he devoted himself to literature. With the exception of Hannchen and die Kiichlein (1822), a narrative poem in ten parts, and an epic on the Creation, Der erste Mensch and die Erde (1828), Eberhard's work was ephemeral in character and is now forgotten. He died at Dresden on the 13th of May 1845. His collected works (Gesammelte Schrifien) appeared in 20 volumes in 1830-1831.
