Thomas Carlyle's The Life of Friedrich Schiller
     

Thomas Carlyle's The Life of Friedrich Schiller

by Thomas Carlyle, Jeffrey Sammons, Jeffrey Sammons (Editor)
 
Carlyle's biography of Schiller is still valuable, both for its insights into Schiller's life and for Carlyle's peculiar relationship to Schiller and German literature in general. In an age that has, by and large, forgotten the great idealist poet, this earliest biography provides good reason for a reacquaintance with a noble personality and distinguished achievement.
