RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 598289 LA English T1 Wilhelm Tell. A1 Schiller, Friedrich,, Mainland, W. F., PB University of Chicago Press PP Chicago YR 1972 SN 0226738000 9780226738000 0226738019 9780226738017 AB "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."
