              Max und Moritz (EPUB ebook)

              By Busch, Wilhelm

              Ach, was muB man oft von bosen Kindern horen oder lesen! Wie zum Beispiel hier von diesen, [Illustration: Max und Moritz] Welche Max und Moritz hieBen. Die, anstatt durch weise Lehren Sich zum Guten zu bekehren, Oftmals noch daruber lachten Und sich heimlich lustig machten. -- --... Ja, zur Ubeltatigkeit, Ja, dazu ist man bereit! -- -- Menschen necken, Tiere qualen, Apfel, Birnen, Zwetschgen stehlen -- Das ist freilich angenehmer Und dazu auch viel bequemer, Als in Kirche oder Schule Festzusitzen auf dem Stuhle. -- -- Aber wehe, wehe, wehe! Wenn ich auf das Ende sehe!! -- -- Ach, das war ein schlimmes Ding, Wie es Max und Moritz ging. -- Drum ist hier, was sie getrieben, Abgemalt und aufgeschrieben.

              Der Schmetterling wird allgemein als autobiografischer Rechenschaftsbericht verstanden. Peters Verzauberung durch die Hexe Lucinde, als deren Sklaven er sich bezeichnet, k nnte eine Anspielung auf Johanna Ke ler sein. Und wie Peter kehrt auch Wilhelm Busch an den Geburtsort zur c...k. Sie entspricht dem Muster der romantischen Reiseerz hlung, wie sie Ludwig Tieck mit Franz Sternbalds Wanderungen begr ndet hat, und Wilhelm Busch spielt virtuos mit den berlieferten Formen, Motiven, Bildern und Topoi dieser Erz hlform. Der Schmetterling parodiert Themen und (M rchen-) Motive der deutschen Romantik und verspottet deren frommen Geschichtsoptimismus aus Buschs illusionslosem, an Schopenhauer und Charles Darwin orientiertem Menschenbild heraus. Wilhelm Busch (1832-1908) war einer der einflussreichsten humoristischen Dichter und Zeichner Deutschlands. Er galt als ein Klassiker des deutschen Humors, der mit seinen satirischen Bildergeschichten eine gro e Volkst mlichkeit erreichte. Heute gilt er als einer der Pioniere des Comics.
