Abstract

The origins of the "Tieck" portion of the "Schlegel-Tieck" Shakespeare (1825-33) can be best understood in the context of the extraordinary interest in Shakespeare translation in Germany in the 1820s and 1830s (eight complete verse translations between 1818 and 1839). The pressure of the contemporary competition, now almost entirely forgotten, helps explain the efforts of the publisher, Georg Reimer, to complete Schlegel's version, first by engaging Tieck (1824), by urging Schlegel to return to the project (1824-30), and finally by prodding Tieck to let Baudissin and Dorothea Tieck do the translations under his supervision (1830-33). The intense competition helps explain the reticence of the real translators and the practice of using the evocative combination "Schlegel-Tieck."
