The modern German novel, a mid-twentieth century survey by H. M Waidson( Book )

26 editions published between 1959 and 1971 in 3 languages and held by 591 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The principal aim of the pages that follow is to give an account of prose fiction written in Germany between 1945 and 1957. The decade which has just passed has been a lively period in the production of novels and shorter stories in Central Europe; moreover, it draws together various phases of the German novel from earlier periods and allows us to examine works which, while being freely open to external influences, whether from England, America, Russia, France, or elsewhere, at the same time have their own peculiar stamp. From this contemporary writing we may legitimately deduce the existence of features which are peculiar to German fiction, and ask where the special contribution of German novelists lies, and what their particular problems are. - p. 1

Wilhelm Meister's apprenticeship by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe( Book )

10 editions published between 1977 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Classic fiction. Seduced by the chimerical world of the theatre and taking upon himself the grand ambition of becoming a successful performer and dramatist, the merchant's son Wilhelm Meister embarks on a tumultuous quest of self-discovery. Along his path he finds himself having to negotiate love, desire and the need to face up to his own past and responsibilities. A landmark in the history of European literature, Goethe's novel is not only one of the key works of Weimar Classicism and the prototype for the Bildungsroman genre, but also a timeless tale of coming into one's own and a fascinating portrayal of the late-eighteenth-century theatre world

Goethes Egmont by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe( Book )

15 editions published between 1960 and 1985 in German and English and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Egmont is a play by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, which he completed in 1788. Its dramaturgical structure, like that of his earlier 'Storm and Stress' play Gotz von Berlichingen (1773), is heavily influenced by Shakespearean tragedy. In contrast to the earlier work, the portrait in Egmont of the downfall of a man who trusts in the goodness of those around him appears to mark a shift away from 'Storm and Stress' values. In Egmont, Goethe relates the fight of Count Egmont (1522-1568) against the despotic Duke of Alba. Egmont is a famous Dutch warrior and the Duke of Alba represents the Spanish invader. Though under threat of arrest, Egmont refuses to run away and give up his ideal of liberty. Imprisoned and abandoned because of the cowardice of his people, and despite the desperate efforts of his mistress Klarchen, he is sentenced to death. Egmont is a political manifesto in which Egmont's craving for justice and national liberty is opposed to the despotic authority of the Duke of Alba. It is also a drama of destiny in which the Flemish nobleman, with fatalism, accepts the dire consequences of his straightforwardness and honesty

Wilhelm Meister by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe( Book )

9 editions published between 2008 and 2020 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the most influential literary works of the early nineteenth century...while the novel is billed as the classic coming-of-age tale, or Bildungsroman, it's far more than that: a story of education and disillusionment, a novel of ideas ranging across literature, philosophy and politics, a masterpiece that resists all pigeonholing
Elective affinities by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe( Book )

9 editions published between 1960 and 2019 in English and German and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Using one of the chemical theories of the time as a metaphor throughout the novel, Goethe juxtaposes social interactions with scientific principles and illustrates the typically Romantic concern of the individual coming to terms with society
