Wilhelm Hauff

Author Code: GWHF

Born: Nov. 29, 1802 - Stuttgart, Germany

Died: Nov. 18, 1827 - Stuttgart, Germany

The Hauff family moved to Tuebingen in 1806. When his father died in 1809, Hauff resided with his grandparents. He immersed himself in the books in his grandfather's library and stimulated his interest in literature. He received his higher education at Tuebingen Stift, a theological college, and took an active part in student politics and activities. He also began to write poetry at this time. In 1824, he was called before the Central Investigative Commission of Mainz to answer charges lodged against his fraternity. While there he met his cousin, Luise Hauff, who he would later marry. In September 1824, he received his doctorate in theology and the following month took a position as a private tutor. In 1825, he published The Curse a novella, and some poems. Later that year his first major work Mittheilungen aus den Memorien des Satan, was published anonymously. In 1826, he published Mann im Mond (The Man in the Moon), which became popular. He then began to publish a series of fairy-tales which were subsequently collected in his Fairy-Tale Almanacs. Also in 1826, he published his historical novel, Lichtenstein. In January 1827, he became the editor for the Stuttgart Morgenblatt. He married in February 1827, but continued to work at a hectic pace which was beginning to affect his health. On a research trip he contracted a fever which possibly developed into encephalitis and he died at the young age of 24. In addition to some poetry and short stories, his other works include Othello (1825), The True Lover's Fortune (1826), The Jew Suss (1827) and The Wine-Ghosts of Bremen (1827).
