Max one and Moritz
History tells in Reimform (Paarreim) of the malicious caperstwo boys, which are directed mainly against respect persons of the society at that time. The book seems with a moral (malice is no life purpose!to end): Max ones and Moritz are finally up-eaten in a mill husbands and by geese. But the reaction to the message ofthe death of the two the moral prevents ironically (wade geiht meck dat on!). Here William Buschs slope points himself to dark and schwarzhumorigen stories, which pulls itself recognizably by its entire work.
Collecting mains for stories supplied the flat-German villages, in those to shrubs withits life spent. Thus the appearance of the mill, in which max and Moritz husbands become, leans to the mill from Ebergötzen (those today to visit still there is).
The victims of the capers (for example widow Bolte, cutter support, teacher Lämpel, uncle Fritz) are overthe connection of history outside admits, equally some verses from the work:
(From the beginning)
- however blows, blows, blows!
- If I see on the end!
(From the third caper)
- max and Moritz, not at all slowly-acting,
- saws secretly with the saw,
- Ritzeratze! full Tücke,
- into thoseA gap bridges.
(from the fourth caper)
- , there the whistle goes to Rums loosely
- with din, terriblly largely!
(Transition from a caper to next)
- Z. B.: This was the third caper, but fourth follows immediately.
(From the end)
- thank God! Now ist's past
- with the Übeltäterei!
As in many of stories Buschs stand also here the numerous, pictures drawn by the author in so close relationship with the text that the work often as a forerunner of the modern Comics is designated.
