Eliot, Charles W. (editor): Harvard Classics 26: Modern Plays. v1. 11 July 07

Modern Spanish, French, and German Plays

Pedro Calderуn de la Barca— Life Is a Dream

Pierre Corneille— Polyeucte

Jean Racine— Phaedra

Jean Baptiste Poquelin Moliere — Tartuffe or The Hypocrite

Gotthold Ephraim Lessing — Minna Von Barnhelm

Frederich Schiller — Wilhelm Tell

Well, "modern" in 1908.

This is the final volume of the Harvard Classic plays.

There will now be a pause in the Harvard Classics postings. The remaining four (4) volumes need extensive work and my work schedule is getting much heavier. Of the remaining volumes, #24 (Edmund Burke) is the closest to bing finished. The three volumes of English poetry (900+ poems) will be the last ones released.

Stats: 45 of 49 for 91.84% or 4 to go.

Modern in 1908? Yeah, sure. I guess the guys who did this collection were really progressive and open-minded. And probably young too.

Anyway, this volume sucks!!! Three French playwriters and only one Spaniard? Just kidding. Of course, all of them are great writers. I just don't understand the absence of Lope de Vega, who had a huge influence on Racine and Corneille (and in my opinion is superior to both of them, but that's just maybe because my French sucks .)

By the way, Pedro Calderyn de la Barca should be Pedro Calderón de la Barca (with an ó instead of a y). In the title page, it appears as Calder n. In the introduction to the play, it is written as Calderon, which I guess might be correct in English since you don't use accents.

Only four to go! Great job! Take your time: we will be waiting.
