Samuel Gotthold Lange (born 22 March 1711 in Halle (Saale) died 25 June 1781 in Beesenlaublingen, Bernburg district) would be a German poet.

He was the boy from the pietist Joachim Lange. He studied theology at Halle, there grew to become knowledgeable about Pyra, that he authored Thyrsis’ und Damons freundschaftliche Lieder (1745), attacked Gottsched, whom they’d both ardently adopted before, and opposed using rhyme in poetry. His most powerful claim that they can fame may be the feeble form of Horace’s Odes (1752), which Lessing criticised and, when roused by Lange’s fling the critic’s works due to their small format were only ‘Vademecums,’ overpowered using the brilliancy of his Vade Mecum fur Lange (1754).
