Aus dem Leben eines Taugenichts (Eng: Life of a Good-For-Nothing) is a novella by German writer Joseph Freiherr von Eichendorff first published in 1826.

A typical romantic novella, voyage and love are the main topics. The protagonist leaves his father's mill and becomes gardener on a Viennese castle and falls in love with the supposed daughter of the duke. Because she is unreacheable for him he travels to Italy but then returns and gets to know that she is just adopted by the duke and nothing stands in the way of a marriage between them.
