Reuter, Christian

(krĭs`tēän roi`tər), 1665–c.1712, German writer of satiric fiction and drama. Reuter's Schelmuffsky (1696, tr. 1962) was among the first picaresque novels in German. His plays for the traveling theater, including Graf Ehrenfried (1700), Die frohlockende Spree [the rejoicing Spree] (1703), and Letzter Zuruf [last call] (1705), describe petty bourgeois weaknesses.
