Not illustrated. 1900 Excerpt: ...(how matters stand). The last part of a conversation on political affairs on the way hither from Steinen. 416. 2Bo Wollt. (lit. 'mean to, ' 'intend to'). fjilt, where are you going? Again idiomatic use of lBoUei1 without the infin. necessary in Eng.; 390 note.--liit implies direction. 421. The only thing to do is to be patient and silent. These terse one-line speeches, in striking contrast to each other, for which Schiller found his model in Greek and French drama, greatly increase the dramatic intensity of the passage. Cf. also 433 ff. and 136, 312, notes. 423. frhitell has here its original meaning bold, rash. Cf. the common proverb, (c)eftrenge erren regieren nidjt lange. 425. This is still custom, indeed law, in many parts of Switzerland, especially in Uri. 431 f. burlj, emphasizes the opinion; surely.--Snitbe, i.e. the Forest Cantons.--tbmiteit, might do; idiomatic use of the auxiliary without any infinitive.--ftitttbcit, old form for ftfittbeit. 437. A remarkable line. Note the very emphatic position of Ser&uttbett, and the strong contrasts Seronnbeit--ottetit, (c)djWa= djen--ntfitfltif). This whole passage is extremely effective; it is a good example of Schiller's power of expressing truth in terse, vigorous, yet beautiful form and figure; he is the most quotable poet in German; of the ten lines 429-438 at least seven have become 'winged words, ' and virtually proverbs, among his people. Cf. the list at the end of the notes. 442. foUtc, rhetorical question; past subj., implying here emphatic denial, and would (do you think), etc. 443. WoS, for )ja8... andj, cf. 190, note. Here, and often, Schiller takes pains to make Tell a private individual, having no part in the concerted, hence political, action of the People's drama. 446. eS foil
