Other Literary Forms
George Joachim Göschen in Leipzig published most of Friedrich Schiller’s early work, including the early plays and the Historischer Kalender für Damen (1790, 1791), which included many of Schiller’s essays and was his only best-seller during his lifetime. After Don Carlos, Infante of Spain, Schiller’s plays were published by Johann Friedrich Cotta in Tübingen. Schiller’s poems, reviews, and short stories appeared in literary journals such as the Musenalmanach (edited by Schiller), Die Horen (edited by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe and Schiller in Weimar), Die Thalia, and Merkur. Schiller’s letters, published posthumously, not only are an indispensable key to the philosophical and historical background of his works, but also are autobiographical documents evocative of the man Schiller, his daily life, and his great gift for friendship. Schiller’s collected works are available in several editions.
