A Biography of Johann Michael Moscherosch (1601-1669)


Stefan F.L. Grunwald

As a social observer, Moscherosch gave an objective appraisal of court live and the politics of the time. He was one of the first belletrists in German literature to make a careful analysis of the physical and psychological effects of war on men. His descriptions show how traditional social values lost their importance, and how human beings became demoralized. This work disproves the belief that Moscherosch was a chauvinist.
