The two plays presented here stand somewhat apart from the rest of their authors’ dramatic work. They appeared at the same time, but as it would appear coincidentally, in the spring of 1803; Goethe knew of Schiller’s plan, but had kept his own a closely-guarded secret. The plays have common themes, but there are also significant divergences between them. Stylistically, the authors had come as far as possible from their youthful enthusiasms and The Natural Daughter and The Bride of Messina represent the apogee of this movement, counter-revolutionary in both an aesthetic and, explicitly or implicitly, a political sense.

F. J. Lamport is University Lecturer in German, retired, and Emeritus Fellow of Worcester College, University of Oxford.

Reviews:

  • ‘Lamport produces a convincing translation of both texts which recognizes their common themes, and diligently reflects how their textures help form their meanings. This is not surprising, but it is still highly commendable.’ — Alex Mortimore, Translation and Literature 27, 2019, 107-15 (full text online)
