Hoffmann, Heinrich, et al: Slovenly Betsy (illus). v1. 16 Apr 2021

Slovenly Betsy: the American Struwwelpeter

Ten naughty little girls appear here, to entertain and instruct by bad example.

This collection of cautionary tales, set in humorous verse, is a “Struwwelpetriade”, a member of that sub-genre that grew out of the success of Heinrich Hoffmann’s Struwwelpeter / Slovenly Peter.


One of the poems, “Pauline and the Matches,” is positively identified as by Hoffmann, taken from Struwwelpeter. “The Dirty Child” and “The Little Glutton” appeared in Slovenly Peter’s Little Story Book, attributed to Hoffmann. “Envious Minnie” was taken from Slovenly Kate (the translation of Lachende Kinder) written by Adolph Glassbrenner. Some of the other poems may have been written by other unidentified authors.

======
Heinrich Hoffmann (1809–1894), a 19th-century German physician, gained lasting fame for writing Der Struwwelpeter, a darkly humorous compilation of cautionary tales about naughty children.

Adolf Glassbrenner (1810–1876) was a German humorist and satirist, considered part of the Young Germany Movement. As well as pictures and articles about Berlin life, he also wrote several children’s books.

This book is reported to have been first published in 1911 by the Henry Altemus Company, with illustrations “based on designs by Walter Hayn” (no data found for Hayn). The translator is not identified.
