This collection of important works Friedrich von Schiller was originally published in 1828 and we are now republishing it with a brand new introductory biography. This book is the best collected edition of the important works of Schiller which is accessible to readers in the English language. Johann Christoph Friedrich von Schiller was born in Marbach, Germany in 1759. When he was thirteen, he entered the military academy Karlsschule, where he studied law and medicine. At 21, he was appointed to a Stuttgart regiment, but by this point writing was his real passion, and took up almost all of his free time. Schiller was not less efficiently qualified by nature for an historian than for a dramatist. He was formed to excel in all departments of literature, and the admirable lucidity of style and soundness and impartiality of judgment displayed in his historical writings will not easily be surpassed, and will always recommend them as popular expositions of the periods of which they treat.
