Originally published in 1913, this book contains the German text of Schiller's tragedy Die Braut von Messina, which caused controversy at its debut for its incorporation of a variety of tropes from ancient theatre. Breul includes a long introduction on the history and reception of the play, its relationship with classical drama and a synopsis, as well as parallel passages from Aeschylus, Schiller and Goethe, and relevant extracts from Schiller's correspondence in the notes following the text. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in the reception of classical theatre or Schiller.
