Translations

The following are simple translations of the passages quoted. The numbers in brackets refer to their order on the page.

p. 13 (1) I am dramatising the history of one of the noblest of Germans; I am redeeming the memory of a good man.

(2) 'das damalige Hof- und Ritterleben', the life of the courts and knights of that time.

p. 15 (1) So you areGötz von Berlichingen! I thank Thee, God, for letting me see him, the man whom the princes hate and to whom the oppressed turn for help!

(2) Maria. O thou noble man! O noble man! Woe to the age that rejected you!

Lerse. Woe to posterity if it is blind to you!

p. 16 I did not hesitate for a moment to renounce the regular theatre. The unity of place seemed to me to inspire fear like a prison, the unities of action and time to be tiresome bonds on our imagination. I sprang into the open and then, then only, felt that I had hands and feet.

p. 17 Strict conditions bring out the true master.

p. 20 He said nothing, and yet my own mind could feel the presence of his. It is a fearful pleasure to behold a great man.

p. 26 Carlos, I am puny, I have no greatness. -- Make me able to act, and then I shall will it, too. I have no power of reflection; have it for me.

p. 32 O God in Heaven, Thou who sendest angels to us in our need, give us the strength to bear these huge events.

p. 33 He felt the ties of humanity. He believed in humanity and so took her with him.
