Kunstlieder

My favourite Kunstlieder are Schumann's Und wüssten's die Blumen from Dichterliebe (poem by Heine) and Schubert's Erlkönig (poem by Goethe).

To me they represent the ultimate in poetic intensity married to piano accompaniment, with both playing important and nearly important roles.

Based on my tastes, are there any other Lieder I should check out? Have there been no Kustlieder composed for the intensely beautiful poetry of Baudelaire, Rimbaud, Poe or others?
