Description
Schiller's play pits Mary, Queen of Scots against her rival Queen Elizabeth I. The meeting never happened but, as Goethe said, “It will be good to see those two whores alongside each otheräó. Schiller's Mary redeems her youthful crimes through an ordeal that lifts her into realms of spiritual serenity, while Elizabeth descends deeper into rage, revenge and deception. Oswald has written this striking new version in a mixture of prose and poetry.
