Wallenstein, Vol. 2: Ein Trauerspiel; Wallensteins Tod

Excerpt from Wallenstein, Vol. 2: Ein Trauerspiel; Wallensteins Tod In a play which has now for nearly a century been studied and commented upon by German and foreign critics, there are but few passages in which it is possible to propose an absolutely new explanation. It has been the editor’s aim not to pass over any difficulty without a note, and to err rather in giving too much help than in giving too little to such as may have to read the play without the assistance of a teacher. Want of space and regard to the main purpose of the book have prevented the editor from discussing any controversial points at length. In such cases he has merely given the explanation which seemed to him to be the most plausible, and brie?y stated his reason for adopting it. He is anxious to commend some of his own explanations of doubtful passages to the consideration of scholars.
