Italian journey by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe( Book )
24 editions published between 1962 and 2011 in English and German and held by 267 libraries worldwide
"In 1786, when he was already the acknowledged leader of the Sturm und Drang literary movement, Goethe set out on a journey to Italy to fulfil a personal and artistic quest and to find relief from his responsibilities and the agonies of unrequited love. As he travelled to Venice, Rome, Naples and Sicily he wrote many letters, which he later used as the basis for the Italian Journey. A journal full of fascinating observations on art and history, and the plants, landscape and the character of the local people he encountered, this is also a moving account of the psychological crisis from which Goethe emerged newly inspired to write the great works of his mature years."--Book cover

Selected works : including The sorrows of young Werther, Elective affinities, Italian journey, Faust by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe( Book )
2 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 7 libraries worldwide
Contains a brief biography of Goethe, a collection of some of his best-known works, and a sampling of his personal correspondence. "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
