Glassbrenner, Adolf: Slovenly Kate and Other Stories (illus). v1. 14 Apr 2021

THIS POST MASSIVELY EDITED, DUE TO INCORRECT AUTHOR BEING CREDITED.

From Adolf Glassbrenner, a collection of cautionary tales set in verse. Slovenly Kate is a “Struwwelpetriade”, an example of the multitude of that sub-genre that grew out of the success of Heinrich Hoffmann’s Struwwelpeter / Slovenly Peter.

These little poems, while demonstrating the bad results of children’s misbehavior, are not so violent or extreme as those in Hoffmann’s Der Struwwelpeter, so they are probably a wee bit more “politically correct” for modern children’s reading.


Slovenly Peter is available here in the MobileRead library:

================
Adolf Glassbrenner (27 March 1810 – 25 September 1876) was a German humorist and satirist, considered part of the Young Germany Movement. Under the pseudonym Adolf Brennglas, he published series of pictures and articles about Berlin life, and thus became the founder of a popular satirical literature associated with modern Berlin.

================
The original German stories by Adolf Glassbrenner (1810–1876) were published ca. 1850. 40 illustrations by Theodor Hosemann (1807–1875), German genre painter and illustrator. The translator is not identified. Owner’s inscription on flyleaf indicates publication of this English translation to be 1875 or earlier.
