Ein Schundverlag (1905)
Ein Schundverlag und seine Helfershelfer (1909)
An die four. Strafkammer des Königlichen Landgerichtes III in Berlin (1910/11).
Vor allem der erste textual content bietet viele detailreiche Schilderungen aus Karl Mays Redakteurszeit. Es handelt sich somit gleichzeitig um einen Vorläufer und um eine wichtige Ergänzung der Selbstbiografie "Mein Leben und Streben" aus dem Jahre 1910. Aber auch die Eingabe "An die four. Strafkammer..." bringt für Karl Mays Lebensgeschichte wichtiges fabric, wobei zahlreiche erzählende Passagen Aufschluss über seine erste Ehe mit Emma Pollmer geben. Die Fassung des Schriftsatzes vom Dezember 1911 stellt Mays letzte größere Autorenarbeit dar. In diesen Kampfschriften zeigt sich der Meister des Abenteuerromans auch als brillanter Beherrscher satirisch geschliffener Sprache, der den literarischen Spott gekonnt als Mittel gegen seine Widersacher einzusetzen wusste.
Hintergrund und Entstehungsgeschichte der Texte werden einmal mehr von Prof. Dr. Christoph F. Lorenz kompetent und ansprechend erläutert.
