Woyzeck is based on a true account of a poor man who was executed for stabbing his wife, Marie, to death. Buchner became fascinated with the case, so much so that he used it as inspiration for the play that would culminate his short literary career. Buchner's characters do not represent the actual historical figures upon which they were based, although their names and the basic outline of the story remain true to life.
