Klassiker aus dem Jahr 2009 im Fachbereich Germanistik - Neuere Deutsche Literatur, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Erste Scene - Hohes Felsenufer des Vierwaldstattensees, Schwytz gegenuber. Der See macht eine Bucht ins Land, eine Hutte ist unweit dem Ufer, Fischerknabe fahrt sich in einem Kahn. Ueber den See hinweg sieht man die grunen Matten, Dorfer und Hofe von Schwytz im hellen Sonnenschein liegen. Zur linken des Zuschauers zeigen sich die Spitzen des Haken, mit Wolken umgeben; zur rechten im fernen Hintergrund sieht man die Eisgebirge. Noch ehe der Vorhang aufgeht, hort man den Kuhreihen und das harmonische Gelaut der Heerdenglocken, welches sich auch bei erofneter Scene noch eine Zeitlang fortsezt. - Fischerknabe singt im Kahn (Melodie des Kuhreihens.) Es lachelt der See, er ladet zum Bade, Der Knabe schlief ein am grunen Gestade, Da hort er ein Klingen, Wie Floten so suss, Wie Stimmen der Engel Im Paradiess. Und wie er erwachet in seliger Lust, Da spuhlen die Wasser ihm um die Brust, Und es ruft aus den Tiefen: Lieb Knabe, bist mein! Ich locke den Schlafer, Ich zieh ihn herein. Hirte (auf dem Berge) (Variation des Kuhreihens) Ihr Matten lebt wohl, Ihr sonnigen Weiden! Der Senne muss scheiden, Der Sommer ist hin. Wir fahren zu Berg, wir kommen wieder, Wenn der Kukuk ruft, wenn erwachen die Lieder, Wenn mit Blumen die Erde sich kleidet neu, Wenn die Brunnlein fliessen im lieblichen May. Ihr Matten lebt wohl, Ihr sonn'gen Weiden! Der Senne muss scheiden, Der Sommer ist

The school I attend is named after Schiller and their emblem is the infamous apple, which is why every class has to read Willhelm Tell sooner or later. I read it when I was in 8th grade and it's ... Read full review

About the author (2009)

Friedrich Schiller was born in Marbach, Germany, the son of an army surgeon, a profession for which he himself was later educated. He never wanted to practice medicine, however, and found an outlet for his dissatisfaction in writing poetry and plays. Schiller's first play was to be performed was The Robbers (1781), a rallying cry for the freedom and idealism of youth against the tyranny and hypocrisy that Schiller saw all around him. The play was an immediate success, but Schiller, who had taken unauthorized leave from his regiment to watch the performance, was arrested and forbidden by the ruling Duke to write anything but medical books in the future. In defiance of the order, Schiller fled the duchy and, although suffering great poverty, continued to write. The remainder of Schiller's life was a struggle against poverty and, in his last years, a struggle against tuberculosis. Each of Schiller's nine plays is a masterpiece of situation, characterization, subtle psychology, and brilliant dramatic technique. Most of his plays focus on historical subjects, such as Mary Queen of Scots, Joan of Arc, or the Swiss hero William Tell. Schiller uses these period characters and settings to suit his own themes, which center on individual freedom, justice, and heroism. He often sacrifices historical accuracy in order to make a point. Schiller's place in German literature is very near the top. Among German dramatists there are none better, and perhaps only his friend German poet and playwright Goethe can be called an equal.
