Voss, Julius von. A German story-writer; born at Brandenburg, Aug. 24, 1768; died at Berlin, Nov. 1, 1832. His rapidity of literary production was almost without a parallel. His best story is ‘The Schildburger’ (The Fooltownite: 1823). He wrote a great many comedies, farces, and satirical parodies. In ‘The Strahlow Haul of Fish’ (1822), a popular piece with songs, in the Berlin patois, he gives the first example of the Berlinese farce.
