He moved to study in Berlin 1885 and in 1886 joined the literary group Durch of young naturalist writers including Gerhart Hauptmann, Arno Holz, and William Bölsche. Throughout his studies he felt torn between his studies and the urge to devote himself entirely to writing... around 1887 he broke off his formal studies. In the 1930s Schalf confessed to the creed of National Socialism. After the Nazi takeover in May 1933, Schlaf was appointed to the 'cleaned' Prussian Academy of Arts)
