Mary Stuart / Joan of Arc  

Mary Stuart / Joan of Arc $36.32 ex GST
$39.95 inc GST
These two tragedies, written at the peak of Schiller’s career as a dramatist, contain his most telling, and touching, portrayals of women. His heroines are propelled, by birth or a sense of divine mission, into exalted political positions, where their qualities as human beings, and particularly as women, are put to the severest tests, from which they emerge triumphant, but doomed.

Schiller’s breadth of sentiment, combined with his consummate stagecraft, and Shakespearean mastery of verse and nobility of language, ensure his position as Germany’s greatest dramatist, and these translations, prepared for, and performed by Glasgow’s famous Citizens Company, should go far to ensure his long overdue acceptance in Britain as a master of the European Theatre.
