He found great success with his epic poem, Der Messias, which consists of 19,458 dactylic hexameters. It appears that some scholars even regard him as the German Baroque poet.  Goethe, in his autobiography, notes his impression of Klopstock: “He was of small stature, but well built…he conversed with facility on various subjects, but rather avoided speaking of poetry and literary matters.” In addition to my translation and the original, you can also listen to a wonderful reading of the poem here.
