Weise, Christian

 

WEISE, CHRISTIAN. Born Apr. 30, 1642, in Zittau; died there on Oct. 21, 1708. German writer and teacher.

Weise wrote plays for students, dramas for the theater (for example, The Tragedy of the Neapolitan Mutineer Masa-gniello 1683), and satirical and didactic novels in which he ridiculed the passion for foreign fashions (for instance, The Three Greatest Fools in the World, 1672). Unlike the pretentious aristocratic German literature of the late 17th century, Weise displays a desire for naturalness and a true picture of life.
