The historical paragon, Johann Christian Woyzeck, was born in Leipzig on January 3, 1780, a son of a wigmaker. He was born into a devilish system of violence. Out of jealousy, he stabbed the 46-year-old widow Johanna Christiane Woost to death. In Büchner’s work, Woyzeck is a soldier and makes a meager living. He improves it by hiring himself out for menial tasks, for there is Marie and his illegitimate child Christian. When Marie betrays him, fear, impulse, and hatred burst out.
