Über den Autor

Johann Christoph Friedrich von Schiller (1759–1805), more prominently known as Friedrich Schiller, was a seminal German poet, philosopher, historian, and playwright, whose influence extended throughout the literary landscape of his time and beyond. Schiller's contributions to the literary canon are marked by an impassioned lyricism and a deep engagement with the aesthetic and moral consciousness of humanity. 'Turandot: The Chinese Sphinx' is one of the remarkable works that exhibit Schiller's dramatic flair—a version of the Persian fairy tale that later inspired Giacomo Puccini's famous opera. Schiller's profound interest in the philosophy of history and his quest for freedom are embedded in his dramatic literature, which often revolves around the individual's struggle with tyranny and societal constraints. His literary style is characterized by a classical approach melded with emotional intensity, a combination that bestowed upon his works a timeless appeal. Among his other famous works are 'The Robbers,' 'Don Carlos,' and the Wallenstein trilogy which deeply probe the questions of personal and political morality. Schiller was also a close collaborator with Goethe, and their discourse helped shape the Weimar Classicism movement. Echoes of Schiller's thoughts were also found in the later ideological frameworks of German Romanticism.
