Friedrich Von Schiller Was A Leading German Poet, And A Philosopher Of Freedom Schiller S Work Exemplifies The Highest Standards Of Ethics And The Ideal Of The Truly Educated, Multilingual Citizen Of The World Schiller Devoted Himself Not Only To Self Determination And Freedom But Also To The Brotherhood Of All People The French Revolution Borrowed Many Of Schiller S Ideas For Its Declarations Of Freedom Schiller Was Then Made An Honorary Citizen Of France His First Drama, Die Rauber, Was Published InIt Was Performed The Next Year And Its Revolutionary Appeal Gained Immediate Success Among Schiller S Best Known Works Is An Die Freude, Ode To Joy , Later Set To Music By Ludwig Van Beethoven In His Choral Symphony The Dramatic Trilogy Wallenstein Was Set In The Tumultuous Period Of The Thirty Years War The Historical Drama Maria StuartWas About Queen Elizabeth I Of England And The Last Days Of Mary Queen Of Scots, When She Was Held Captive In The Castle Of Fothernghay In Wilhelm Tell, About The Swiss Hero Of That Name, Schiller Paid Tribute The Dignity Of Men Living Close To Nature The Mountain Cannot Frighten One Who Was Born On It InHe Was Forced To Give Up His Professional Duties Because Of Illness In The S Schiller Wrote Philosophical Poems And Studies About Philosophy And Aesthetics He Assisted Goethe In Weimar In The Direction Of The Court Theater By Adapting Many Plays For That Stage Schiller Died On May , , At The Age OfIn Weimar the poems are very bright This rating is solely for the poetry I absolutely loved Schiller s imagery, because there is somehow very little of it, yet it is some of the most effective With less of it, he takes those few images further One of my favorites, The Artists , particularly took me places I never expected However, as a slight warning about this edition The book does give some good endnotes about the translation, but the rest of it is sloppy the page numbers are out of order it skips from 65 to 100, then from 337 to 306 And the translation itself seems to have many mistakes in the punctuation, capitalization, etc.I found Schiller s work to be phenomenal, but I would suggest finding another edition. This book is a wonderful collection of some of the finest poems ever written The famous ones like Die Glocke The Bell or Die Brgschaft The Hostage shine as bright as the less known ones This book is real value for money and shouldn t be missed on any decent bookshelf.
