Friedrich Schiller (1759-1805) was one of the most influential of all playwrights, the author of deeply moving dramas that explored human fears, desires and ideals. Written at the age of twenty-one, The Robbers was his first play. A passionate consideration of liberty, fraternity and deep betrayal, it quickly established his fame throughout Germany and wider Europe. Wallenstein, produced nineteen years later, is regarded as Schiller's masterpiece: a deeply moving exploration of a flawed general's struggle to bring the Thirty Years War to an end against the will of his Emperor. Depicting the deep corruption caused by constant fighting between Protestants and Catholics, it is at once a meditation on the unbounded possible strength of humanity, and a tragic recognition of what can happen when men allow themselves to be weak.

 These are two plays from German playwright Friedrich Schiller. The Robbers was his first work, written in 1780 at the age of 21. Wallenstein came 20 years later, where he humbly attempted to concoct a Sophocles, Shakespeare and French classical dramatic stew. From Penguin Classics, this two-in-one volume best represents German Classicism as Schiller blends idealism and realism with his grand rhetoric and powerful drama.
