Description

This text features two plays by Schiller, dating from 1787 and 1800 respectively. One written immediately before the French Revolution, the other in its aftermath, both dramatized periods of crisis in 16th-century Europe, and in doing so reflect Schiller's passionate engagement with the great themes of his own age - justice, power, freedom of conscience and legitimacy of government. These new translations into blank verse are accurate and playable. The introduction, notes, and chronology set the plays in their cultural and intellectual background, while a family tree explains the historical relationship between "Don Carlos" and "Mary Stuart".show more
