Excerpt from Johannes: Trago¨die in Fu¨nf Akten Und Einem Vorspiel
Hermann sudermann was born at Matziken, a small village in east-prussia, near the Russian frontier, on September 30, 1857. His parents were poor. When a boy of fourteen, he was apprenticed to a chemist. Though... his youth was passed in narrow circumstances, he gained a Gymnasium and University education. He attended the Realschule at Elbing, and then at Tilsit, whence he went to the University of Konigsberg. In 1877 he continued his studies in history, philology, and modern languages at the University of Berlin. For 'some time he was tutor in the family of the well known novelist and story-writer Hans Hopfen. In 1881 he turned to journalism, and became the editor of a small weekly, on which he did most of the work, among other things writing short stories for its pages. He broke off connection with the paper, because his views were too radical, and decided to live by literature, which, after a hard pinch, he was able to do comfort ably. His home is in Berlin. His summers are usually spent at Blankensee near Trebbin.
