TRIESCH, FRIEDRICH GUSTAV (pseudonyms, Alex Hartmann, Paul Richter, H. Martin):

Austrian dramatist; born at Vienna June 16, 1845. Triesch studied sculpture for a time at the Akademie der Bildenden Künste, Vienna, but soon turned to literature. Lack of means forced him to follow mercantile pursuits for a short period, but the success of his second piece, the farce "Lachende Erben" (1867), caused him to devote all his time to playwriting. In 1868, in the prize competition of the Hofburgtheater, Vienna, he obtained honorable mention and a production for his comedy "Im XIX. Jahrhundert," and in 1877 two of his plays, "Höhere Gesichtspunkte" and "Die Wochenchronik," were similarly honored. In 1879 his comedy "Neue Verträge" won the first prize offered by the Munich Hoftheater; and in 1892 his drama "Ottilie" won the first prize in the competition instituted by the Litterarisches Vermittlungsbureau of Hamburg, there being 383 competitors.

Triesch is also the author of numerous poems and short stories and of the following plays: "Amalie Welden," comedy, 1865; "Mädchenherzen," drama, 1873; "Träume Sind Schäume," comedy, 1873; "Vorsicht," comedy, 1876; "Reine Liebe," comedy, 1877; "Anwalt," drama, 1881; "Hexenmeister," comedy, 1884; "Nixe," comedy, 1887; "Hand in Hand," 1890; "Factotum Flitsch," farce, 1892; "Liquidator," farce, 1896; "Ihr System," farce, 1898; "Endlich Allein," comedy, 1900.
