Wilhelm Tell by Friedrich Schiller( Book )

15 editions published between 1950 and 1988 in 4 languages and held by 87 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."

Don Carlos, Infant von Spanien : Ein dramatisches Gedicht by Friedrich Schiller( Book )

8 editions published between 1949 and 1975 in English and German and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Friedrich Schillers quot, dramatisches Gedichtquot, quot, Don Karlos, Infant von Spanienquot, hat eine ungewöhnliche lange Entstehungszeit und eine komplizierte Entstehungsgeschichte. Die ersten Entwürfe stammen aus dem Jahr 1783, die letzten Änderungen reichen bis ins Jahr 1805. Erstmals publiziert und uraufgeführt wurde das Drama in Blankversen im Jahr 1787 - in Schillers Werk markiert es den Übergang vom Sturm-und-Drang-Drama zur Klassik. Vertrauen und Verrat sind die Leitmotive dieses höfischen Intrigenstücks, das Schiller zu einem politischen Kriminalfall gestaltet hat. Die Freundschaft zwischen dem Kronprinzen Don Karlos und dem Malteserritter Marquis Posa und ihre Sehnsucht nach politischer und persönlicher Freiheit im Weltreich Spanien Mitte des 16. Jahrhunderts scheitern an den Machtgelüsten ihrer Gegner, die selbst nur Marionetten einer allmächtigen Inquisition sind. Text aus Reclams Universal-Bibliothek mit Verszählung der gedruckten Ausgabe
