Don Carlos, Infante of Spain - Schiller Friedrich
Aristotelian drama. The facts simply are, that Schiller wrote the first two acts, which were published separately; and that a con siderable period elapsed before he added the three others. It is said, that he found in the archives at Dresden, which he was examining in search of documents relative to the revolt of the Netherlands, some among them which bore upon the history and character of Don Carlos, and induced him to alter the plot of the play; a circumstance that laid him open to the charge of want of unity in its develop ment, and of having sacrificed Don Carlos, the hero of the first two acts, to the Marquis Posa, who plays the most prominent part in the three subsequent ones. He has himself pleaded guilty, in part, to the accusation; ex cusing himself by the interruptions which occurred in the completion of it, and oh serving that the time employed ia a work of this description ought not to exceed a single summer. He has, however, so completely disarmed and refuted the criticisms made up on it in other particulars, that it would be superﬂuous as well as presumptuous in me, to offer any apology for a work of so distinguish ed talent. The grandeur of the ideas and the sublimity of the language which prevail.
