Les Orientales is a collection of poems by Victor Hugo, inspired by the Greek War of Independence. They were first published in January 1829.

Of the forty-one poems, thirty-six were written during 1828. They offer a series of highly coloured tableaux depicting scenes from the eastern Mediterranean that, reflecting the cultural and political bias of the French public, underscore the contrast between freedom-loving Greeks and imperialist Ottoman Turks. The fashionable subject ensured the book’s success.

Fridolin: oder der Gang nach dem Eisenhammer is a ballad by Friedrich Schiller. He wrote it as part of his 1797 ballade competition with Goethe. It was first published in the Musenalmanach for 1798, published by Schiller.
