The poetry of one of the greatest
of the German dramatists and
writers, Frederich Schiller, was
discussed yesterday in a sympos-
ium led by Prof. Martin Dyck of
the German department.
Prof. F. B. Wahr, professor
emeritus, opened the discussion by
declaring that Schiller was a cor-
nerstone of German culture.
"As a poet, I don't know if he
suits the tastes of the modern
generation, but he was one of the
foremost poets of German culture
and a great lyric poet of lis own
generation," Prof. Wahr continued.
He next brought up the ques-
tion: is Schiller great as a poet'
and is he a lyrical poet?
By discussion among panel mem-
bers and members of the audience
it was concluded that although he
has written several lyrical poems,
they lack depth and are too dis-
Emery George of the German
department said that "a work of
art tells us something about our-
selves and the world through an
Elaborating on Schiller's effec-
tiveness, Prof. T. G. Winner of the
Slavic languages department said
that few Western writers and no
Western poet has had such a great
effect on Russia.
"At this time Russia was in need
of the revolutionary ideas and
asthetic theories of Schiller where-
as most nations had put these
qualities behind them; perhaps
this accounts for the wide accept-

ance of his poetry in Russia," con-
tinued Prof. Winner.
Prof. Wahr noted that Schiller
knew real life and that he chal-
lenged life. 'Although he led a
brooding life and felt impinged
upon and inhibited most of the
time, he built up a vision of a
better world to come.
He wanted philosophical free-
dom over political freedom, al-
though his poems may be inter-
preted to apply to political situa-
tions, he said.
Commenting on the emotional
nature of Schiller's works, Prof.
R. C. Blake of the psychology de-
partment said that Schiller was
strongest in his dramatic ability.
His plays are intensely emotional,
not just thought out, and the pres-
ent generation does not appreciate
his intense uncontrolled emotion-
Another panel member, Prof. G.
Cambon, visiting lecturer in the
English department, emphasized
the dramatic nature of Schiller's
poetry as opposed to its lyrical
