Schiller Poem Recitation
by Dr. Donald Crosby
Special Video Feature on Schiller and Language:
The video recitation honors Friedrich Schiller's talents as a poet and master of the German language.
Background: Several years ago, at an AGS Lunch mit Lyrik, Donald Crosby, one of AGS's charter members, gave an interpretive recitation of Schiller's Ballad, Der Taucher, and did so with great energy, and a flawless German accent.
At the end of the recitation, Dr. Crosby presents, a short commentary in English on the expressiveness of the German Language.
Thank you John Loth for the Taucher texts below.
