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"

Wilhelm Tell by Friedrich Schiller( Book )

15 editions published between 1950 and 1988 in 4 languages and held by 83 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."
