This translation of the correspondence between the two most famous German authors, Goethe (1749-1832) and Schiller (1754-1805), contains over one thousand mostly very long letters on a great variety of literary topics of the day. The authors jointly edited a famous literary journal in which most of the contemporary writers published. Some portions of the Correspondence refer to these authors and their works to be published. More importantly, they discussed each other's work in progress criticizing it and making suggestions for changes. Since this was both authors' most creative period, the many letters referring to their works give a very valuable and rich critical insight into those works. The letters abound in philosophical and esthetic ideas of the period.
