Ernst Kreuder (29 August 1903 – 24 December 1972) was a German author. He was born in Zeitz and died in Darmstadt.


His 1946 work The Attic Pretenders concerned a secret associations view of imagination and reality and was well received. [1] Unica Zürn considered it to be one of her favorite books. [2] He also wrote works like Those Who Cannot Be Found[3] and The Undiscoverables.[4] Although his works have been described as melancholy or Kafkaesque he stated that "the literary fashion of hopeless despair must be overcome."[5]
