Friedrich Schiller was a German poet and playwright. He was also a translator and a magazine editor. In his early years, he wanted to become a priest, then he studied law and finally became a military doctor.
He was born on November 10, 1759 in Marbach, Württemberg, Germany.
His first and most famous works are "The Robbers." In this play, Schiller is trying to let us know about good and evil coexisting and that we need to stand up to injustice in any way possible.
After publishing this book, as a military doctor, he was forbidden to pursue his literary career, so he ran to Stuttgart where he was free to keep on writing.
He published "Fiasco", "Don Carlos", "Intrigue and Love" after "The Robbers" and before he died he went to Weimar where he wrote historical plays "Wallenstein", "Mary Stuart", "The Maid of Orleans", "William Tell" and "The Bride of Messina".
