Wihelm Tell by Friedrich Schiller
Schiller formed his play from the historical events taking place in the Waldgaststätte between 1291 and 1315 as well as the Nordic myth of the apple shot. The foreign rule of the Austrians in Switzerland provoked the self-defence of the confederates who have led a life of naive-idyllic perception so far, not exposed to the altering power of policy but only to the cycle of nature. Through the famous apple shot Wilhelm Tell, the protagonist of the drama, is forced to risk the life of his child. In this way he is jolted from his idyllic believe and displaced into brutal reality. Friedrich Schiller: Wilhelm Tell. Hard cover in a slipcase, 512 pages, 38 x 53 mm, Miniaturbuchverlag Leipzig 2005. German edition. The decoration is only for view and not part of the offered product.
