Johann Christoph Friedrich von Schiller (1759-1805) was a German poet, philosopher, historian, and dramatist. Schiller wrote many philosophical papers on ethics and aesthetics. He developed the concept of the Schöne Seele (beautiful soul), a human being whose emotions have been educated by his reason, so that Pflicht und Neigung (duty and inclination) are no longer in conflict with one another; thus "beauty," for Schiller, is not merely a sensual experience, but a moral one as well: the Good is the Beautiful. His philosophical work was also particularly concerned with the question of human freedom, a preoccupation which also guided his historical researches. Schiller is considered by most Germans to be Germany's most important classical playwright. Critics have noted his innovative use of dramatic structure and his creation of new forms, such as the melodrama and the bourgeois tragedy. Amongst his famous works are Love and Intrigue (1784), Don Carlos (1787), The Minister (1796), The Death of Wallenstein (1799), The Piccolomini (1800) and Mary Stuart (1800).

About the Author:

Mike Poulton has a string of successful translations and adaptations to his name, most notably Turgenev's "Fortune's Fool" (which won a Tony Award) and Schiller's "Don Carlos", which played for several months in the West End earlier in the year.

Review:

"'Magnificent... leaves no doubt you are watching a classic... In Mike Poulton's fleet and vivid new translation... the story of the tyrannical King Philip II of Spain and his abused, love-tormented son, Don Carlos, has all the deftly plotted twists and turns of a thriller. You lean forward in your seat, desperate to discover what happens next... an absolutely spellbinding production of a masterpiece' Daily Telegraph; 'Grandage directs an exciting version that would do honour to ay of our big national stages... triumph' Guardian; 'Marvellous' Independent"
