Busch, Wilhelm   
(1 of 3 for author by title)
Plish and Plum: From the German of Wilhelm Busch
Published:   1908
Publisher:Lothar Joachim Verlag
Tags:fiction, humour, poetry

Sly wit and black humour mixed with seemingly innocent images -- those are the hallmarks of Wilhelm Busch's works. He is always happy to serve a comeuppance if one is due, and his everyday sketches reveal a subtly darker and yet hilarious world.

Schlitzohrig und geistreich die Texte, scheinbar harmlos die Bilder – daran erkennt man die Werke von Wilhelm Busch. Allzu gern serviert er die fällige Quittung, und seine alltäglich wirkenden Zeichnungen lassen eine spaßige und zugleich düstere Welt erahnen. [Suggest a different description.]

Author Bio for Busch, Wilhelm

Author Image

Wilhelm Busch (1832-1908) was a German illustrator and poet. He is best known for his "Max und Moritz" cartoon series. During his time he was Germany's best known artist-poet. He successfully satirized 19th century philistinism and hypocrisy but also the foibles of life and living. Some early American comic strips such as "Katzenjammer Kids" were a direct imitation of Busch's style. (Benét's Reader's Encyclopedia)
