Conrad, Michael Georg (mĭkhˈäĕl gāˈôrk kônˈrät) [key], 1846–1927, German critic and novelist. With Karl Bleibtreu, he founded (1885) the journal Gesellschaft as a rallying point for German writers of the naturalistic school. Conrad espoused the cause of Zola with great enthusiasm. His works include a volume of criticism, Madame Lutetia (1883), and a naturalistic novel of Munich life, Was die Isar rauscht [What the Isar murmurs] (1887).
