Raabe Wilhelm
(18311910)

Raabe Wilhelm(18311910)

German novelist, whose pseudonym was Jakob Corvinus. At 23 he began to write novels and tales of village life; the charming idyll Die Chronik der Sperlingsgasse (1857) first brought him acclaim. Raabes humor often serves to cover a more bitter irony. He later turned to the historical past and wrote such tales as the tragic Des Reiches Krone [the imperial crown] (1870). His novels include Der Hungerpastor (1864, tr. 1885) and Abu Telfan (1867; tr. Abu Telfans Return from the Mountains of the Moon, 1881).
