Franz Lubojatzkys Fischhändler von Neapel oder Wie die Masaniello-Revolte von 1647 in die deutsche Populärliteratur Einzug hielt

Isabelle Ruiz


This contribution provides a multidisciplinary analysis of a popular historical novel written by a forgotten German author of the 19th century. It is fitted into the context of the German publications about Masaniello, the leader in the Neapolitan revolt against the rule of Habsburg Spain in 1647. In the paper, it is given priority to an aesthetic approach and is shown the popularization of Romanticism in the text. It is simultaneously considered the political context of the Vormärz – when the novel was published – and the possible political orientation of the author of the novel.
