Hell in classics of German literature

The high authorities who speak about life and death send me - you thieves - you murderers, - you rascals - poisonous brood of otters that creeps in the dark and stings in secret - leprosy of humanity - Hell spawn, - delicious meal for ravens and vermin - colony for gallows and wheel.

Friedrich Schiller: The robbers, 1781

I can defy your spirits
Your dark Hellish antics,
Because in me is Jesus Christ
Enjoyed his body.

Heinrich Heine: Romanzero, 1851

Invoice for invoice is corrected,
The usury claws are appeased,
I'm such a lot Torment of hell;
Heaven couldn't be more cheerful.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe: The tragedy second part, 1833
