Wilhelm Busch was one of the most influential humorous poets and draftsmen of Germany. As early as the 1870s, he was one of the well-known personalities in Germany. During his lifetime he was considered a & ldquo; classic of German humor & rdquo; which achieved a great popularity with his satirical picture stories. Today he is considered one of the pioneers of comics.
His most famous works include the picture stories
- "Max and Moritz",
- "The pious Helene",
- "Plisch and Plum",
- "Hans Huckebein",
- "the unlucky raven" and
- the "Knopp trilogy".
His two-line phrases like & ldquo; Becoming a father is not difficult, but being a father is very & ldquo; or & ldquo; This was the first trick, but the second is soon to come & rdquo ;. His satires often mock characteristics of individual types or social groups. In his picture stories, for example, he attacks the complacency and dubious moral concept of the playful bourgeoisie and the frivolity of bourgeois and clerical persons.
