Excerpt from Wilhelm Tell: Schauspiel
By similar word-formations. Some few instances of form association (often called 'false analogy') or popular ety mology occurring in the text have been pointed out in the notes. A special chapter on the metre and style of the play has bee... n added to this edition. It does not of course lay any claim to completeness, but the chief facts have been pointed out and it is hoped that it will enable even a beginner to understand correctly the structure of the lines. Experience of several years has convinced the present editor that even advanced students of German, who are well acquainted with the grammatical structure of the language, are as a rule altogether ignorant of the chief peculiarities of German metre, and often cannot even read simple blank verses properly. In the study of poetry special attention ought to be given to the metrical form as well as to the meaning of the words and their grammatical construction, and it is to be hoped that the formal beauty of modern poetry will before long be no less seriously studied than the various forms of classical verse. The editor has prefixed the chapter on metre and style to his edition of Tell, although it does not stand to this play in a closer connection than to any other, because the ordinary school-grammars either do not treat of the metre at all or do so in an utterly inadequate manner, and because he wished to illustrate his statements by instances taken from this play.
