Karl Gutzkow

a.k.a. Karl Ferdinand Gutzkow

Author Code: GKGU

Born: Mar. 17, 1811 - Berlin, Germany

Died: Dec. 16, 1878 - Sachsenhausen, Frankfurt, Germany

Educated in theology and philosophy at the University of Berlin, he began his literary career while still a student, producing a periodical entitled Forum der Journalliteratur. He broke off his studies in 1830 because of the July Revolution in Paris, inte4nding to devote himself to politics. He became a political journalist in 1831, assisting W. Menzel on the Literaturblatt in Stuttgart. He published his first novel, Maha Guru, in 1833, satirizing the Christian religion as it was then practised in Germany. Also in 1833, Gutzkow resumed his studies, first at Heidelberg University, then Berlin. He visited Italy briefly in 1833. His views on social matters became increasingly radical and led to a split with Menzel. In 1835, he published Wally die Zweiflerin concerning an emancipated woman resulting in a federal decree which accused him of blasphemy and bringing the Christian religion into contempt. Convicted of the latter, he served a month in prison in 1836. That year, he became editor of the Frankfurter Borsenzeitung. In 1837, he founded Der Telegraph fur Deutschland. It was around this time that Gutzkow devoted himself to writing plays, and in that he was prolific. In 1842, he moved to Frankfurt. In 1848, he was in Berlin, but did not participate in the Revolution. He returned to writing novels in 1849. From 1861 to 1864, he was secretary of the Schiller Foundation in Weimar. His health began to deteriorate and he attempted suicide, after which he moved frequently. He died from smoke inhalation, presumably after he knocked over a lamp when he was heavily sedated. His many works include Seraphine (1838), Richard Savage (1839), Zopf und Schwert (1844), Das Urbild des Tartuffe (1847), Der Konigsleutnant (1849), Der Ritter vom Geiste, (1851), Der Zauberet von Rom (1859) and Die Neuen Serapionbruder (1875).
