Book Description:
Der Roman Uli der Knecht von Jeremias Gotthelf (1797-1854) erschien 1841. Es handelt sich formal um einen pikaresk angelegten Roman. Die Episodenhaftigkeit ist hier als relevantes Merkmal zu nennen. Daneben ist der Roman aber als Bildungsroman/Erziehungsroman einzustufen, der - ganz im Zeichen von Gotthelfs Lehrtätigkeit - den Leser auf den richtigen Weg sowohl hinsichtlich des Geldes wie auch der Ehrfurcht vor Gott und dem Meister, führen soll.
