Ernst Benjamin Salomo Raupach (1784–1852)

Raupach, Ernst Benjamin Salomo (rou’päċh). A German dramatist; born at Straupitz, Silesia, May 21, 1784; died at Berlin, March 18, 1852. He was popular in his day, but has latterly fallen into neglect, though he has many admirers still. His leading plays include: ‘The Princess Chawansky’ (1818); ‘The Enchained’ (1821); ‘The Magic Ring of Love’ (1824); ‘The Friends’ (1825); ‘Isidor and Olga’ (1826); ‘Raphael’ (1828); and ‘The Daughter of the Air’ (1829). His comedies were very successful,—among others, ‘Critic and Anti-Critic,’ ‘The Smugglers,’ and ‘The Spirit of the Time.’
