8053 Kleist           Discovered 1960 Sept. 25 by C. J. van Houten and I. van Houten-Groeneveld on Palomar Schmidt plates taken by T. Gehrels.
Heinrich von Kleist (1777-1811) was a prolific writer who was not known during his lifetime. He traveled throughout Europe, living in Dresden and Königsberg, where he studied the philosophy of Kant. In 1811 he committed suicide together with his girlfriend. His plays, including Das Kätchen von Heilbronn, Prinz von Homburg and the popular Der zerbrochene Krug, are highly regarded nowadays, as are his novels and short stories.
