MÜGGE, mụg'ge, Theodor (1806-61). A German novelist, born and educated in Berlin. His liberal sentiments, expressed in various newspapers and in such pamphlets as Die Censurverhältnisse in Preussen (1845), led in several instances to his arrest and prosecution. During the twenty years preceding his death he wrote numerous sketches, tales, novels, and romances, which appeared in a complete edition in 1862-67 (33 vols.). Several, including Toussaint (1840) and Afraja (1854), have been translated into English by E. J. Morris. The most interesting of his writings are his Norwegian romances and sketches of travel: Leben and Lieben in Norwegen (1858); Skizzen aus dem Norden (1844); and Nordisches Bilderbuch (1858; 3d ed. 1862).
