Detailed Description

This volume brings together six lectures given to mark the bicentenary of the birth of Friedrich Schiller. Four of the papers were delivered as part of the 1959 annual meeting of the Conference of Teachers of German in the Universities and University Colleges of Great Britain and Ireland, which was held in July of that year at Bedford College London and was organised together with the English Goethe Society. Professor Witte's lecture was first presented to the English Goethe Society in October 1959 and Professor Purdie's paper was given in November that year at the German Cultural Institute in London.
