Franz Grillparzer Quotes

Did you know about Franz Grillparzer?

The poetic influence of Lope de Vega and Pedro Calderón de la Barca is felt. Historical tragedies
For his historical tragedy King Ottokar's Fortune and End (German: König Ottokars Glück und Ende 1823 but owing to difficulties with the censor not performed until February 19 1825) Grillparzer chose the conflict of Otakar II of Bohemia with Rudolph I of Germany. Grillparzer's conceptions are not so clearly defined as Goethe's nor is his diction so varied and harmonious; but the play has the stamp of genius and ranks as one of the best of those works in which an attempt has been made to combine the passion and sentiment of modern life with the simplicity and grace of ancient masterpieces.

Franz Seraphicus Grillparzer (15 January 1791 – 21 January 1872) was an Austrian writer who is chiefly known for his dramas.
