Don Carlos, Infant von Spanien : Ein dramatisches Gedicht by Friedrich Schiller( Book )
8 editions published between 1801 and 1989 in English and held by 98 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
