Alfred Wegner, Scientist

Alfred Vegner is a German geologist, meteorologist and polar researcher. But he is very unfortunate that many of his researches have been recognized posthumously.

His time-honored ‘floating terrain theory’ was later further consolidated and organized by ‘plate tectonic theory’. Vegner published this theory in 1912. The basic premise of this theory is, ‘Continents were once connected to each other and later they moved away from each other. But Alfred Wegener did not receive a proper assessment while alive.

John Keats, English poet

John Keats is a romantic poet of English literature. Along with Lord Byron and Percy Bishie Shelley, he was also one of the second generation of romantic poets. His creations were published just four years before his death. Sadly, in the eyes of the critics of that time, his poetry did not get a very high status. After his death his poems began to receive proper evaluation. Even in the late nineteenth century he was recognized as one of the most popular English poets.

His influence can be seen on many later poets and writers. Many poets and writers have researched his works. Now various activities are going on with his writings. According to Jorge Luis Borges, the first acquaintance with Keats’s writing was one of the most important events in his literary life. Kiss died in Rome on February 23, 1821.
