EBOOK READ (Wilhelm Tell) ¼ Friedrich Schiller

Signaler un problème yN s stories whileou read along in the lavishly illustrated magazine Frankly every child deserves to grow up listening to Brian Blessed bellow out The Elves and the Shoema Late 15th century SwitzerlandWilhelm Tell is a local folk hero He is forced by a tyrannic ruler to shoot at an apple placed on his son s head at a distance of a hundred feetHe succeeds without wounding his son but in revenge later kills the tyrant and his country gains independenceThis famous play by Friedrich Schiller is amazing in beauty of language and dialogs I would say of Shakespearean ualityI had read it long ago in my Un monstre dans les céréales young schoolears but names and the action came uickly back to my mindA basic must read in Classic German literature Physical freedom and liberty of the soul are central ideas of Schiller s literature In his very first play The Robbers 1781 Schiller spoke of the ideas of liberty His famous play Wilhelm Tell on which Rossini s famous opera is based was also a tribute to freedom The Romantic influence is apparent in Wilhelm Tell The mountain cannot frighten one who was born on it Indeed this play was also a tribute to men living close to nature the Romantic ideal of the harmony between nature and mankind Don Carlos another play by Schiller on the issue of liberty inspired the great Italian Romantic opera composer Giuseppe Verdi to write one of his greatest operasSeldom does a play include fewer scenes or lines for the title character Nam yet Wilhelm Tell is in few scenes and has relatively little to say in this great play the last completed by Friedrich Schiller Nature looms as the play begins during a tempest on Lake Lucerne when Tell braves the angry waves to row to safety a peasant who is pursued by the Governor s horsemen The lake may take pity on him but the Governor never says Tell Andes there is the famous scene where Tell refuses to bow to the hat the symbol of repressive Habsburg power and is in turn forced to shoot the apple off his son s head And there is the ultimate act which makes him a patriotic hero when he kills the Governor Gessler the imperial representative hated by Tell s fellow countrymen and women Beyond that the scenes in this play demonstrate the importance of those countrymen and their closeness to the land and traditions of their forefathers This is a powerful romantic drama about the desire for freedom but it is also an Arcadian idyll that presents the best of nature It seems almost Rousseauian in the opening scenes that are set in a seeming state of nature Eden like as the country may be it is also beset by tyranny from the dreaded imperial Hapsburg empire We see the attraction this life has for Ulrich von Rudenz the nephew of Baron von Attinghausen While Attinghausen is a patriot his nephew is attracted to the other side and is brought back to support his countrymen only through the intervention of his love for Painting Landscapes from Your Imagination young Berta The importance of Berta and Lady Gertrud in their influence over the men closest to them is worth noting Schiller s play the culmination of his dramatic art is a joy to read Over theears it along with other plays by Schiller has found its way to the operatic stage in this case through the pen of Rossini while Verdi was attracted to other of Schiller s works While the large cast and number of different scenic locations make this a difficult work to stage I could not help thinking that we are overdue for a this a difficult work to stage I could not help thinking that we are overdue for a traversal of this tremendous literary resource The special slipcover 1952 edition release from Heritage Press includes a four page newsletter literary resource The special slipcover 1952 edition release from Heritage Press includes a four page newsletter for the members of the Heritage Club Based around the true events of the rebellion in Switzerland against Austria in 1291 William Tell is a translation of Johann Christoph Friedrich Von Schiller s original play Wilhelm Tell which was the basis for Rossini s opera which is still a popular performance in Germany and Switzerland The book has an introductory essay to familiarize readers with the events as they #COINCIDE WITH THE VARIOUS ACTS OF #with the various acts of play It also has an appendix with annotations of certain words and phrases related to the play that help those unfamiliar with Switzerland s history or land It s uite handyWritten in Stage Play format the story is that of several men from the three cantons states that existed in Switzerland at the time whose freedom was being taken and the country was dominated and overrun by Austria The primary antagonist is Hermann Gessler Governor of Schwytz and Uri two of the cantons He s very similar to the infamous Sheriff of Nottingham in the Robin Hood tales Perhaps Gessler and Tell stories are related to a degree despite being in a different part of EuropeGessler is so full of himself and demanding obedience of the rebellious Switzers he demands they even bow down to a cap representing Austrian rule sitting upon a post in the middle of the primary roadway Guards are stationed at the post and ordered to arrest anyone passing the cap and refusing to bow down to it William Tell happens to be going through town with one of his son s Walter to visit his father in law He is unaware of the absurd law He is arrested as Gessler happens to be riding through town Gessler is actually in debt to Tell and unhappy about the fact He decides to test Tell s renowned talent with his crossbow forcing him to shoot an apple of Walter s head at nearly 100 ards If he refuses they both die If he shoots and misses William dies If he shoots and hits Walter they both die Not much of a choice Walter refuses to be tied to a tree so he won t move and he refuses a blindfold having faith in his father s ability which he brags about Tell shaking and nervous fires the crossbow bolt hitting his target True to form the evil governor arrests Tell anywayThe rebels are saddened and plot revenge They had already met to decide on how and when to revolt Tell is doomed for the dungeons or must figure out a way to escape during a perilous journey The five act play has uite a bit of drama It s easy to see why this was a popular opera and play and such an important part of Switzerland s historyThe title page gives illustration credit to Charles Hug but the newsletter from the Heritage Club credits Rafaello Busoni Whoever did the illustrations did a very nice job as several full page images fill the book. R while always ready to aid his fellows habitually seeks solitude In the midst of political turmoil Wilhelm Tell is the nonpolitical man of actionKeenly interested in the problematic interplay of history and legend Schiller turned it to be dramatic advantage He constructed his play to illustrate the greatest possible development of the character traits suggested for Tell by the chronicles The result of Schiller's supreme achievement in historical drama.

Purpose Aside from having absolutely loved reading Wilhelm Tell as a literary drama but never having had the chance to see it staged I also tend to often forget that historically it was actually Schiller s wife Charlotte who already in 1789 the play was completed in 1804 less than two ears before Schiller s death from tuberculosis at the relatively oung age of 45 made her future husband aware of the Tell legend as well as his good friend Johann Wolfgang von Goethe who during his own travels to Switzerland not only researched Wilhelm Tell but had also at one time seriously considered Wilhelm Tell for a possible literary work before deciding against this and handing the information and research he had amassed over to Friedrich Schiller And therefore while Friedrich Schiller is definitely and in all ways to be considered the sole author of Wilhelm Tell it must and should be noted that the genesis of the latter that the production and development of Wilhelm Tell does indeed owe much to Schiller s wife s Lotte s enthusiastic encouragement and his friend Goethe s Swiss travels and research for Friedrich Schiller himself actually never did visit never did manage to travel to Switzerland With regard to the play itself for me personally what I have always found both most enjoyable and really even essential with regard to Wilhelm Tell is the cheering fact that unlike other dramatic works of German Classicism and even a number of Schiller s own offerings Wilhelm Tell in particular is presented in a generally reasonably approachable comparatively easy to understand manner both not too difficult to read and also therefore not too difficult to watch performed never simplistic never trivial but fathomable for a lay person for someone who does not necessarily need to have advanced degrees in literature and philosophy to enjoy and appreciate settings dialogues monologues descriptions etc For basically the main themes of Wilhelm Tell the both individual and collective historical struggles of the Swiss against Habsburg against their often cruel and ruthlessly arbitrary Austrian overlords is shown clearly concisely and even with a sense of adventure and thrillingness kind of like watching a movie or at least I have always been able to visualise Wilhelm Tell as a movie as a running adventuresome script when I read when I peruse the play Now especially in German Classicism most dramas need to present a clearly delineated turning point and Schiller s Wilhelm Tell is no exception here During the first scenes of the play while the main protagonist while Wilhelm Tell is indeed portrayed as being much sympathetic to his fellow countrymen s concerns about and struggles against the Habsburg Empire he does tend to keep himself rather aloof and apart he is intuitive nature bound and does not want to embrace politics political struggle or entertain thoughts of rebellion which of course then changes after the arrow incident as Tell must realise that he can no longer remain neutral and is thus also no longer unwilling to actively strive against the oppressors no longer unwilling to stalk and personally assassinate the nastily tyrannical Gessler And finally with regard to the famous applearrow scene in my humble opinion it is actually first and foremost Gessler s broken promise to Tell that he would not face arrest or execution if he if Tell truthfully gives the reason why there were two arrows placed in his uiver which finally and firmly cement not only Tell s desire to kill Gessler but also convinces him to fully and wholly join the rebels AGAINST THE HABSBURGS NAMELY THAT IF the Habsburgs namely that if had missed and had injured or killed his son Walter whilst trying to shoot that apple from his head the next arrow would have been for Gessler himself For if one looks at the entire apple shot scene realistically if Wilhelm Tell had been an active and es dedicated adversary against Gessler against the Austrian overlords right from the start he would or at least he should not have actually bowed down and done what was being demanded of him by Gessler he would not have shot the apple from his son s head he would instead have immediately used his bow and arrows to kill Gessler to punish with death his tyranny and his outrageously hateful demands Yes at the end of Wilhelm Tell Gessler has been assassinated and the main character Wilhelm Tell has one hundred percent now joined the rebels but it has taken an attack on himself and his family as well as Gessler s broken promises that truth loving and honest Tell was arrested to be executed even after Gessler had specifically promised that he could speak without fear #of the latter for Wilhelm to finally realise that Gessler is indeed an evil monster who needs #the latter for Wilhelm to finally realise that Gessler is indeed an evil monster who needs be gotten rid of and that the struggles of the Swiss against the Habsburgs are both just and necessary that his support Tell s expertise his marksmanship are not only appreciated but desperately needed I really should re read all of those German classics that my teachers forced on me over the ears Because I kept none of them in good memory D I was really interested in this drama because 1 I promised myself to read dramas and I found this one in our collection 2 I ve always been intrigued by the whole William Tell legend because it is a main part of our national deck cards in Hungary but I knew little about it only the apple sceneI really liked this drama What I liked most is that it was just not a mere historical tableauxcostume drama only showing the great deeds and happenings but it was also really lyrical dramatic and poetic and how Schiller could tell us a lot about human nature and emotions how people having absolute power and control on people drunk on power behave and what they do to break people to discourage them from rebellion how some people break important bonds because of promises and romantic attraction how some traumas induce poisonous thoughts in people how real achievement in a community s life could only achieved by co operation and joint efforts I learnt to read thanks to a fortnightly magazine called Story Teller that was around in the early 80s it was one of those publications that came with a cassette taped to the front cover on which various celebrities of the day could be heard reading out fairytales and childre. Es its impressive formal unitySchiller based his play on chronicles of the Swiss liberation movement in which Wilhelm Tell played a major role Since Tell's existence has never been proven Schiller a historian by profession felt he had to devise a figure who would bring the uncertainties and contradictions of the various Swiss chronicles into focus Respected for his courage and skill with a bow for his peaceable nature and his integrity Schiller's arche. .
After Die R uber I felt a sense of Schiller s play as returning to and experimenting with ideals of political legitimacy and establishing new societies unsurprising concerns for a writer at the end of the Ancien Regime era in Wallenstein the traditional authority of the Emperor trumps the personal loyalty of the army to it s General and paymaster while the robbers mutual loyalty and commitment to raising crime levels everywhere proves undesirable and unsustainable only in Tell does a society founded on a mutual oath prove resilient and in this case the oath takers effectively are the inheritors of the traditional feudal authority of their lord The new society must be grafted on to the old root stock in order to flourish or as somebody else was to put it referring to a different place everything has to change to stay the sameThe staging reuirements for this play compared with others by Schiller are ambitious mountains stormy lakes horses live archery either his the Many people have heard of Wilhelm Tell and the shooting of an apple off of a head I had not really heard the full story of Schiller s play It seems odd that so few lines would be included for the title character but this is not a play about Wilhelm Tell He is an obscure Swiss hunter who lives under the government of the tyrant Gessler Gessler fills the jails with the peasantry and his abuse finally spills over into rebellion Tell does not seem to seek a lead role rather promising support when needed Tell The man of courage thinks not of himself Help the oppressed and put thy trust in God 11 On a visit to his father in law he is captured and then pressed by the governor to display his hunting prowess by shooting the apple off his son s head He is successful but then makes a threat to Gessler This line spoken by Furst is not written in the moment but seems to apply here Oh how can we scarce mastering our passions expect that outh should keep itself in check 26I will not give away the rest of the play but suffice it to say that Gessler s abuse is rebuffed finally by Tell as he defends his family His defense as an individual against tyranny sets off the larger rebellionuite the Romantic play there are great philosophic lines In closing I ll note a few below I really enjoyed the uality of the drama and the Schiller s writing throughout This is a play that I hope I get to see performed somedayAttinghausen Such greater wisdomAnd so much clearer vision do Keto Diet for Beginners: The Keto Diet Cookbook with Quick and Healthy Recipes incl. 30 Days Weight Loss Plan you claimThan allour noble forebears who did fightAs heroes risking allthey owned for freedomGet Wachten op Apollo you to Luzern and study thereHow cantons live beneath the Austrians ruleThey ll come I warrantou to count our flocksOur herds and measure all our grazing lands They ll claim the ownership of all the creaturesWhich make their habitation in our forests At every bridge and gate they ll set toll barOur penury will pay for lands they buyOur blood for all the wars they choose to wageIf blood of ours be wagered on a ventureThe venture must be ours and slaveryCosts than freedom 41Rudolf Der Harras So it has reached this pass Obedience and fear take flight together 120The Brothers With swift approach death comes to manTo him is never respite given Or e er he s counted half his spanFrom toil and pleasure he is drivenPrepared or not his God to meetHe s called before the judgement seat 120Suggested further readingBook DetailsSchiller Friedrich von Tr William Mainland Wilhelm Tell Chicago The University of Chicago Press 1972 154 PagesPassagesTell The man of courage thinks not of himself Help the oppressed and put thy trust in God 11Furst Oh how can we scarce mastering our passions expect that Criminal Juries in the 21st Century: Psychological Science and the Law (American Psychology-Law Society Series) youth should keep itself in check 26Attinghausen Such greater wisdomAnd so much clearer vision doou claimThan all Callisthnie -

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 which drew substance from one of the fourteenth century liberation movements proved both attractive and inflammatory Since then the work as become immensely popular This new English translation by William F Mainland brings out the essential tragi comic nature of Wilhelm Tell but also emphasiz. ,
