Wilhelm Tell by Friedrich Schiller ( Book )
2 editions published between 1972 and 1973 in English and held by 566 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."

Die Jungfrau von Orleans : eine romantische Tragödie by Friedrich Schiller ( Book )
3 editions published in 1963 in German and English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Mit seinem 1801 erschienenen und uraufgeführten Drama quot,Die Jungfrau von Orleansquot, hatte Friedrich Schiller zu seinen Lebzeiten grossen Erfolg. Die Geschichte des lothringischen Bauernmädchens Johanna von Orleans, das - unter Berufung auf göttliche Eingebung - die französischen Truppen von Sieg zu Sieg führte, dann in die Hände der Engländer fiel und 1431 als Hexe verbrannt wurde, rückt Schiller aus den Grenzen des blossen Geschichtsdramas heraus - Johanna wird bei Schiller nicht auf dem Scheiterhaufen verbrannt, sondern erlebt die Apotheose auf dem Schlachtfeld. Formal nimmt diese quot,romantische Tragödiequot, eine Sonderstellung in Schillers Werk ein: die dramatische Entwicklung wird durch lyrische Passagen unterbrochen, die Versformen sind ungewöhnlich vielfältig und reichen vom Blankvers über die feierliche Form der Stanze bis hin zum jambischen Trimeter, dem Dramenvers der antiken Tragödie.
