Friedrich Wilhelm Goter


Among the old printed Purim shpiels, writes B. Gorin, in his "History of Yiddish Theatre", is the play "Di shtoltse ushti", eyn komishes shoyshpiel in reymen fun g__r (Friedrikh Vilhelm Goter), Breslau, 1797 (?)."

Goter was a good Yiddish writer, and his play is written in German, not in Yiddish, Gorin [erroneously?] based on that in the beginning of Aaron Halle Volfson's comedy "Leykhtzin und fremmeleye" (Breslau 1796) -- is also printed as Goter's comedy "Di shtoltse ushti" in German, transcribed into Yiddish [utyut]. In the second issue of Volfson's comedy (Amsterdam 1798) is [shoyn] Goter's comedy, which is no longer published.
