Friedrich Schiller (1759-1805) was one of the most influential and deeply moving of all playwrights. The Robbers (German: Die Räuber) was Schiller’s first drama, published in 1781. A passionate consideration of liberty, fraternity and deep betrayal, it quickly established his fame throughout Germany and wider Europe. The plot revolves around the conflict between two aristocratic brothers. The charismatic but rebellious student Karl is deeply loved by his father. The younger brother, Franz, who appears as a cold, calculating villain, plots to wrest away Karl's inheritance. Schiller's highly emotional language and his depiction of physical violence mark the play as a quintessential Sturm und Drang work. Schiller raises many disturbing issues in the play. He questions the dividing lines between personal liberty and the law and probes the psychology of power, the nature of masculinity and the nature of good and evil. Translated into English.
