"The author starts with the provincilaism and confusion of German in the early eighteenth century, with its uncertain allegiance to ancient traditions of court and school. He examines in detail the arguments of critics, philosophers and poets who attempted to establish new standards -- and not only their arguments, but their style as well. He discusses the principal works of literature from this special point of view. He ends with the young Goethe, the required genius who confirmed and magnificently extended the careful advances of his predecessors." from the jacket flap.
