René Engelmann (1880-1915) was one of the first English teachers in Luxembourg at the Diekirch secondary school. He studied Latin, French, German and English at the Cours supérieur in Luxembourg and at universities in Paris and Berlin from 1899 bis 1903. He took his own life at the age of 34.
Engelmann made his name with works dealing with the Luxembourg language, his literature and works relating to literary history were published after his death. “Auf heimatlichen Pfaden” features four novellas, which are often set in Vianden and place women in central roles. He also completed the studies “Victor Hugo à Vianden” and “Aus einem alten Viandener Hausregister 1770-1806”.
