The prince by Niccolò Machiavelli( Book )

7 editions published between 1910 and 2004 in English and held by 566 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based upon Machiavelli's first-hand experience as an emissary of the Florentine Republic to the courts of Europe, The Prince analyses the usually violent means by which men seize, retain, and lose political power. This fluent new translation is accompanied by comprehensive notes and an introduction that dispels some of the myths associated with Machiavelli, and considers the true purpose of The Prince. - ;'A prince must not have any other object nor any other thought...but war, its institutions, and its discipline; because that is the only art befitting one who commands.'. When Machiavelli's b

Wilhelm Tell by Friedrich Schiller( Book )

8 editions published between 1871 and 1896 in 3 languages and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When Schiller completed Wilhelm Tell as a 'New Year's Gift for 1805' he foretold that it would cause a stir. He was right. In the midst of Great Power politics a play that drew substance from one of the fourteenth-century liberation movements proved both attractive and inflammatory. Since then the work has become immensely popular. This new English translation by William F. Mainland brings out the essential tragicomic nature of Wilhelm Tell but also emphasizes its impressive formal unity."

Gotthold Ephraim Lessings Nathan der Weise in einer spannenden Hörspiel-Fassung für alle Generationen. Erleben Sie Nathan der Weise von jungen Schauspielern im Original szenisch gelesen und mit lebhaften Hörspielszenen illustriert. Ein Erzähler führt durch die Handlung und erläutert das Werk. Gotthold Ephraim Lessing (1729 bis 1781) hat als Humanist und Dichter der deutschen Aufklärung die Entwicklung des modernen Theaters vorangetrieben. Sein Drama Nathan der Weise ist vom Toleranzgedanken geprägt. Zur Zeit der Kreuzzüge treffen in Jerusalem Vertreter der drei großen Weltreligionen durch eine Laune des Schicksals aufeinander. Recha, die Ziehtochter des jüdischen Händlers Nathan, wurde vom christlichen Tempelherrn aus einem brennenden Haus gerettet. Dieser wiederum verdankt sein Leben dem muslimischen Sultan Saladin, der im Tempelritter eine Ähnlichkeit zu seinem verstorbenen Bruder bemerkt. Bei einem Zusammentreffen fragt der Sultan Nathan nach der "wahren Religion". Und Lessing lässt ihn mit der Ringparabel antworten

Nach Ende des Siebenjährigen Krieges wird Major Tellheim, vom Wirt aus seiner Stube in ein schlechteres Zimmer umquartiert, da er nicht mehr zahlen kann. In sein Zimmer zieht eine vermögende Frau mit Kammerjungfer ein, die sich seine Verlobte Minna von Barnhelm entpuppt. Minna sucht nach Tellheim. Tellheim verkauft seine Verlobungsring begleicht damit seine Wirtsschulden. Nun wohnen er und sein Diener Just in einem heruntergekommenen Haus. Tellheim verlor sein Geld verlor er, weil er dem Militär während des Krieges Geld vorschoss. Sein Wechsel jedoch wird nun vom König nicht eingelöst und so bleibt Tellheim auf seinen hohen Ausgaben sitzen. Da er zudem für sein eigentlich nobles Verhalten im Krieg kritisiert und verdächtigt wird, fühlt er sich zusätzlich in seiner Ehre gekränkt. Als er erfährt, dass Minna von Barnhelm in der Stadt ist, die seinen versetzten Ring gekauft und so von seinem Aufenthalt in Berlin erfahren hat, zieht er sich aus Scham vor ihr zurück. Auch seinem besten Freund, dem Wachtmeister Werner, erlaubt er nicht, ihm mit Geld auszuhelfen. Minna von Barnhelm und ihre Kammerjungfer Franziska, die Gefallen an Werner gefunden hat, wollen Tellheim durch eine List seinen Stolz heimzahlen. Minna verkündet ihrem Verlobten, dass sie seiner nicht würdig sei und ihn daher nie heiraten könne: "Sein Wechsel könne jederzeit eingelöst werden und seine Ehre wiederhergestellt werden, ihre Ehre jedoch sei dahin, da ihr Onkel sie wegen einer verweigerten Ehe mit einem für sie gewählten Mann verstoßen habe"
