  • Gregor Wilhelm Nitzsch (22 November 1790 – 22 July 1861) was a German classical scholar known chiefly for his writings on Homeric epic. Brother of Karl Immanuel Nitzsch, he was born at Wittenberg. In 1827 he was appointed professor of ancient literature at the University of Kiel, but in 1852 was dismissed by the Danish government for his German sympathies. In the same year, he accepted a similar post at Leipzig, which he held until his death. In opposition to F. A. Wolf and Karl Lachmann, Nitzsch maintained that the Iliad and Odyssey were not an aggregate of single, short poems but long and complete ones, composed by the same single author according to a uniform plan with a central dramatic idea. His writings were broad, dealing with every side of the controversy. In the earlier part of his Metetemata (1830), he took up the question of written or unwritten literature, on which Wolf's entire argument turned, and showed that the art of writing must be anterior to Peisistratos. In the later part of the same series of discussions (1837), and in his chief work (Die Sagenpoesie der Griechen, 1852), he investigated the structure of the Homeric poems, and their relation to the other epics of the Trojan cycle. Nitzsch died at Leipzig. His son, Karl Wilhelm Nitzsch (1818–1880), became professor of history at Königsberg in 1862 and at Berlin in 1872. (en)
  • Gregor Wilhelm Nitzsch, född den 22 november 1790, död den 22 juli 1861, var en tysk filolog, son till Karl Ludwig Nitzsch, bror till Christian Ludwig och Karl Immanuel Nitzsch, far till Karl Wilhelm Nitzsch. Nitzsch blev 1827 professor i klassisk litteratur i Kiel och 1834 tillika e.o. medlem av slesvig-holsteinska regeringen i Gottorp med överinseende över. Hans tyska sympatier gjorde dock, att han 1852 till och med avsattes från sin professur. Samma år kallades han till professor i fornkunskap i Leipzig efter den avsatte Otto Jahn. Han är bekant genom Erklärende anmerkungen zu Homers Odyssee (3 band, 1826-40, behandlande de tolv första rapsodierna) och andra arbeten över de homeriska sångerna. I den så kallade homeriska frågan fasthöll han envist den gamla uppfattningen av dessa diktverk som en enhet. (sv)
