Married the actor Joseph Koberwein in — The Berlinische musikalische Zeitung no. Herr Bullinger could have become a good singer had he undergone more methodical training.

But now it is probably too late. His unbalanced tonal quality, which has now become a habit, his incorrect sense of taste, and his lack of understanding of musical concepts are shortcomings that can no longer be so easily laid aside. Herr Bullinger seemed quite to disdain the public here, since he did not even consider it worth his while to memorize his roles that well. He made significant mistakes in almost every piece he sang, often even singing incorrect notes or remaining silent altogether; this insecurity generates a strong element of affectation that invariably accompanies all his singing.

Revelation, XXII, 5. The dash doubtless stands for Schubart, who had just begun his ten years' political imprisonment, and whom Haug dared not name. Hatred of tyranny is a characteristic expression of the humani- tarian and democratic tendencies of the 18th century; it is particularly violent in the young Schiller, as in Klopstock, the poets of the ''G5ttinger Hain", and the Storm and Stress men; contrast the positive political ideal of Schiller's Posa, Don Karlos, III, Sc.

Cieucn, archaic as intr. Conclusion of the condition beginning 1. This tautological cumulation of superlatives is an exaggeration of a common device of Klopstock's. Recast in TJie subject may have been first suggested to Schiller by a passage, in H. Sturz's book on Rousseau see introd.

The situation is that of the famous passage in the Iliad, VI, f. It is probable that Schiller had no direct acquaintance with the Iliad in X, f. In a letter to Korner, May 27, , Schiller calls this one of the best of his early poems; he refers to it here as Hektor und Andromacha.

Nadowessische Totenklage , 4, 21f. Jungfrau von Orleans , 1. This consolation is modern and un-Hellenic. In the Iliad, Hector's last words express his strong sense of duty and calm resignation to the decree of Fate.

Schiller's poem is rather in the sentimental and elegiac tone of Ossian, and the dialogue form is Ossianic, On the close similarity of motifs in this poem with passages in Hoven's translation from Ossian see ALG. VIII, f. In the 2d ed. The scene of the peasant leaders in Goethe's Gotz, Act V, is somewhat in this tone; even more so in the earlier Gottfried von Berlichingen, which Schiller could not have known, however, as it was not printed until after Goethe's death.

Schiller was doubtless influenced by the reck- less tone of some of Burger's poems and by folk-songs on famous robbers, such as Robin Hood, or "der bairische Hiesel", who was hanged in Sung to the melody of the famous student-song Gaudeamus igitur, and still to be heard as a popular song at German fairs, with many changes and in parody.

One of several occasional poems written in this period, more or less to order; others are the Ode auf die gliick- liche Wiederkunft unsers gnddigsten Fiirsten, with fulsome flattery of the Duke of Wiirtemberg; the two poems entitled Empfin- dungen der Dankbarkeit, in which Schiller flatters the duke's favorite Franziska von Hohenheim; and the Totenfeier am Grahe Riegers, on the death of a general whose character the poet idealizes out of all resemblance.

The funeral elegy or Leichencarmen was one of the commonest forms of occasional poetry, which flourished especially in Wiirttemberg. Schiller himself, in the preface to his Anthologie Feb. This Leichenphantasie cf. June 13, , a fellow-pupil at the Academy, whose older brother was Schiller's intimate friend. In Schiller's report upon the char- acter of his fellow-students, written by order of the duke in Bell. I, 24 , Hoven is not spoken of in very complimentary terms; but he developed into one of the most promising students in the Academy, and was a great favorite with the duke.

Two days after Hoven's death, Schiller wrote a letter of condolence to the father, in the exag- gerated style of Die Rduber. The sombre Ossianic color and that of Holty's melancholy elegies is largely in evidence in this poem. Schiller himself was in a Werther mood at this time, as were many of his companions; one of them had just applied to him for an opiate, with a view to suicide.

Note the formal antithetical use of meter, solemn trochees and laughing dactyls, with which cf. The device of the funeral procession had been used before by Schubart; a similar device is the procession to the place of execution in Schiller's Kindesmorderin, Cronegk, Gunthers Schatten, If.

Incoherent expression of a sudden reminiscence of friendship with the dead. The inapt rontett, for an embrace, is dragged in by the rhyme; so in Das Gehehnnis der Reminiszenz first form, ?

For another interpretation, see Jonas, p. On "Laura" see the Introduction. For the fundamental idea of the poem, cf. Schiller's address Die Tugend in ihren Folgen betrachtet Bell. I, 97f. The same thoughts reappear in the Theosophie des Julius ? The idea that harmony of soul is the fundamental law of the universe goes back to Leibniz. Schiller probably got this and other important elements of his early philosophy from a German translation of Adam Ferguson's Institutes of Moral Phi- losophy , which he used at the Academy.

Ferguson com- bines the ideas of "sympathy" and universal "benevolence" under the "law of society", which he compares in an extended parallel to the law of gravitation in the material world. Schiller probably was not familiar at this time with the ancient Greek conception of Eros as the harmonizing principle of the universe Empedocles , though his idea of "love" bears some similarity to this.

Goethe has a somewhat similar con- ception in a poem of his old age, Wiederfinden, in the Divan Werke, VI, f. Faust, 1. The word "love" in this poem is used in the ambiguous sense of "attraction", and so made to apply equally to the world of matter and that of spirit; and this same principle is made to cover the idea that opposites attract each other 1.

Schiller Drama Thought and Poetics

Jacobi, An J. Schiller's later judgment of Rousseau, tJber naive und sentimentalische Dichtung, Bell. Rousseau died July 2, , and was buried on the estate of his last patron, the Marquis de Girardin, at Ermenonville; in his remains were solemnly transported to the Pantheon at Paris; twenty years later, at the time of the Restoration, the mob desecrated the tombs of both Rousseau and Voltaire and threw their bones upon a refuse-dump. The thought is that countries, or cities, will yet fight for the honor of claiming Rousseau as their son.

They are but "missing links" between beast and man, tags on the outskirts of humanity; cf. Note that Schiller is not thinking of an unbroken evolutionary continuity. The Garonne has to do service here for the sake of the rhyme, which also occurs in Wieland's Oberon, 1.

    Stupidity makes Rousseau responsible for the ills of France, as superstition attributes pestilence and war to a comet. It must have been in a dream or a fever-fancy that Fate made Rousseau a Frenchman.

    This is the first general study of Friedrich Schiller's works to

    The old wound of intolerance and persecution. Sturz in his Denkwilrdigkeiten gives this comparison with Socrates. The ideal of "humanity" is the highest to Herder, Goethe, and Schiller, as well as to Lessing. For this whole passage on true and false religion, cf.

Some of his adventures, including the story Schiller here tells, are related in Uhland's ballad-cycle Graf Eberhard der Rausche- hart.

    Schiller's immediate source is not known. He probably became familiar with the subject through the historical lectures of J. This ballad is conceived as a "war song" subtitle , sung by Eberhard' s soldiers, as Gleim's Kriegslieder are sung by a Prus- sian grenadier. The meter is borrowed from Gleim, the same trotting iambics with abrupt masculine rhyme; the stanza differs only in the reduplication of the third line.

    There was a revival of Swabian national pride at the time of this poem, and the writers of Wiirttemberg generally were zealously claiming recognition of their home land as the equal of proud Saxony in the produc- tion of great men and good poetry, 6f. Typical names of foreign rulers, perhaps with the thought of such individuals as Charles V. He was old enough at the time of his death to have a grandchild, but Schiller conceives of him as a youth, just as Goethe poetically rejuvenates Egmont, and Kleist the Prince of Homburg.
