Covering the period from his birth to his departure for Weimar in 1775, in "Poetry and Truth" Goethe recalls his childhood and youth as the son of well-to-do, middle-class parents, his education and literary awakening, early loves, and the creation and reception of works from his "Sturm und Drang" years, such as "The Sorrows of Young Werther," "Goetz von Berlichingen, " an Covering the period from his birth to his departure for Weimar in 1775, in "Poetry and Truth" Goethe recalls his childhood and youth as the son of well-to-do, middle-class parents, his education and literary awakening, early loves, and the creation and reception of works from his "Sturm und Drang" years, such as "The Sorrows of Young Werther," "Goetz von Berlichingen, " and "Urfaust."

    Dacă citești și Cântecul și Hronicul vârstelor va fi greu să nu observi similitudinile pe care le au între ele, mai ales începutul și sfârșitul care par lucrate pe aceași matrice. Goethe e cald în vorbă, chiar dacă mesajul e unul dur, nu știu cât de mult se păstrează în traducere(a lui Tudor Vianu) atmosfera originală intenționată în germana în care a fost scrisă, dar tonul se aseamănă cu cel din Suferințele tânărului Werther, iar asta fiind singura mea expertiză în materie, las judecata celor m Dacă citești și Cântecul și Hronicul vârstelor va fi greu să nu observi similitudinile pe care le au între ele, mai ales începutul și sfârșitul care par lucrate pe aceași matrice.

    Kind of a slog. I'm afraid I read Goethe mostly for the light it might throw on Wittgenstein, who read him. I usually enjoy reading autobiographies, but this was not too enlightening. He has a lot to say about the places he went and the people he met, but they are all pretty obscure. The editor's footnotes are helpful, but mostly to remind us that they are all obscure. Goethe does relate a number of incidents that were presumably formative in his development, but they are not all that insightful. Kind of a slog.

Goethe does relate a number of incidents that were presumably formative in his development, but they are not all that insightful. Part Three ends with what seems to be him about to be married. Some interesting passages include: -Discussions of philosophy (pp. 171, 208, 364, 459) -Discussions of poetry (pp. 69, 200, 331, 364) -Biblical translation and interpretation (pp. 366, 377) -Professors and college students (pp. 190. 192) -Changing one's mind (p. 196). It is impressive how wide-ranging his interests and abilities are.
