German Refugees by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Book Description

Goethe's collection of stories (1795) is modelled on the "Decameron". A family of German nobles have been forced from their home on the left bank of the Rhine by the French Revolution. Their peace is further disrupted by the arguments between the young Karl, a supporter of the ideals of the revolution, and the other men. The Baroness saves the situation by suggesting they amuse each other by telling stories. There are seven in all: two short ghost stories, two amorous anecdotes and two more substantial moral tales, the whole being concluded with Goethe's richly worked, fantastic, symbolic, allegorical "Fairy Tale".

Author Biography - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Johann Wolfgang Goethe (1749-1832) was one of the world's greatest writers and a universal genius. In addition to his plays, novels, poetry he was a talent artist, actor and theatre director. He had a keen interest in science and in addition to his experiments and scientific writing he liked to involve himself in practical pursuits such as mining, economics, architecture, horticulture and landscape gardening. The publication of his novel The Sorrows of Young Werther (1774) brought the twenty-five year old Goethe instant fame throughout Europe. His masterpiece is Faust (part 1 1808, part 2 1832) which he spent most of his life working on. It is a play of inexhaustible ambiguity and magical poetry with an immense panorama, reflecting the developing vision of a lifetime, with its comedy and tragedy, pathos, wit and satire.
