Overview

Overview

Valuable for its insights into Schiller's life and for Carlyle's peculiar relationship to Schiller and German literature in general.
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.
