Description

Passing the father's house of the writer Giacun Hasper Muoth, you finally reach the Cuort faction. The farmer's son Giacun Hasper Muoth (1844 - 1906) was able to attend a school in Feldkirch at the age of fifteen. In 1868, the student went to Munich to continue his studies. The first literary products were created during this time, while Muoth was interested in almost all areas of knowledge.
A university professor encourages him to focus more on the Rhaeto-Romance language. Cycles of poems and ballads are created. In the 70s he devoted himself as a history teacher at the cantonal school in Chur primarily to the research of the Rhaeto-Romance language and history. The Rhaeto-Romani also becomes an eager fighter for the preservation of the Rhaeto-Romance language. He was the first poet to write in Sursilvan, in which he applied the verse form of the hexameter. In his main works, the poet describes many events in the history of the Cadi. Muoth had to spend the winter of 1905/06 in the Kreuzspital in Chur, where he finally died on 6 July 1906. He finds his final resting place in the episcopal court cemetery. On its outer wall, a monument to the great writer of the Cadi still commemorates today.
