GLÜCKSMANN, HEINRICH (pseudonym, Hermann Heinrich Fortunatus):

Austrian author; born at Rackschitz, Mähren, July 7, 1864. He began his literary career at sixteen, one of his first productions being "Aufsätze über Frauensitten und Unsitten," which appeared in the "Wiener Hausfrauen-Zeitung" under the pseudonym "Henriette Namskilg." He then became a teacher in the Vienna School of Acting. From 1882 to 1885 he was editor of the "Fünfkirchner Zeitung," and from 1884 to 1886 held similar positions with the "Neue Pester Journal" and the "Polit'sche Volksblatt" of Budapest.

In 1886 Glücksmann published an illustrated biographical edition of the works of Michael von Zichy, the painter; and in the same year he published a biography of Munkàcsy. Since that time he has been active as a feuilletonist and dramatist. His works are: "Weihnachts-Zauber," drama, 1888; "Die Ball-Königin," comedy, translated from the Hungarian, 1889; "Wien," literary almanac, 1891; "Neues Evangelium," drama, 1892; "Das Goldene Zeitalter des Gewerbes," 1893; "Ungarns Millennium," 1896; "Liebesbrief," transl., 1897; "Kreislauf der Liebe," transl., 1897; "Dr. Idyll," transl., 1897; "Die Bürde der Schönheit," romance, 1897; and "Franz Joseph I. und Seine Zeit," 1898-99.
