Description:

Hardcover. 1248 pages. Dimensions: 8.2in. x 5.3in. x 2.2in.One of the towering figures of world literature, Goethe has never held quite as prominent a place in the English-speaking world as he deserves. This collection of his four major works, together with a selection of his finest letters and poems, shows that he is not only one of the very greatest European writers: he is also accessible, entertaining, and contemporary. The Sorrows of Young Werther is a story of self-destructive love that made its author a celebrity overnight at the age of twenty-five. Its exploration of the conflicts between ideas and feelings, between circumstance and desire, continues in his controversial novel probing the institution of marriage, Elective Affinities. The cosmic drama of Faust goes far beyond the realism of the novels in a poetic exploration of good and evil, while Italian Journey, written in the authors old age, recalls his youth in Italy and the impact of Mediterranean culture on a young northerner. Translators include W. H. Auden, Louise Bogan, David Constantine, Barker Fairley, and Elizabeth Mayer(Book Jacket Status: Jacketed) This item ships from multiple locations.

Book Description Everyman's Library, 2000. Book Condition: Used. This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: To celebrate the 250th anniversary of Goethe's birth, Everyman's Library is publishing in a single volume his four principal masterpieces, together with a small selection of his poems and letters.Goethe established an international literary reputation overnight with The Sorrows of Young Werther (1774), a story of disappointed love and pathological sensibility which mounted a powerful challenge to the rationalism of the Enlightenment. His later novel Elective Affinities (1809) develops these themes further in a brilliant study of the tensions between social convention and the need for emotional fulfillment. Goethe's exploration of marriage, adultery, and the relations between the sexes is as relevant today as it ever was. The epic two-part drama of Faust (1805 and 1832) occupied Goethe throughout his life. It explores the nature of good and evil through a rewriting of the medieval German legend. This is a cosmic drama unlike any other, a reflection on the world, heaven, and hell in the tradition of Dante.,The prose translation by Barker Fairley is exceptionally readable. Italian Journey (1816-29), written in the author's old age, recalls the years he spent in Italy as a young man educating himself. It is a vivid account of the enormous impact the Italian Renaissance and Mediterranean culture makes on a young Northerner -- a theme familiar from works by many later German writers including Nietzsche and Mann.All as readable as the day they were written, these four very different books demonstrate the variety and fertility of Goethe's creative powers, while underlining the consistency of his life-long preoccupations with man's destiny as a creature of spirit, reason, and feeling in astrange universe.The Everyman volume will also include a small selection of Goethe's lyric poetry and his letters. Goethe is considered the finest lyric poet of the German language and one of the finest letter writers of. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_usedgood_0375410449
