103 Great Poems (Dual-Language) (Dual-Language Book) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Exceptionally fine poetry by Germany's greatest literary figure spans a wide range of styles, forms and moods, offering a rich selection of the poet's verse — from his earliest, "An den Schlaf" ("To Sleep"), written when he was 18, to his last great poem, "Verdächtnis" ("Legacy"), written when he was 80.

Synopsis:

Generally considered Germany's greatest literary figure, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832) created a large body of exceptionally fine poetry spanning a wide range of styles, forms, and moods. Now this convenient dual-language edition allows readers to savor a rich selection of the poet's verse in the original German, with excellent line-for-line English translations on facing pages. Included in this volume are "Prometheus, " typical of the Sturm und Drang (storm and stress) period; "Rastlose Liebe" ("Restless Love") and "An den Mond" ("To the Moon"), lyric pieces of intense beauty; the narrative ballads "Der Fischer" ("The Fisherman") and "Erlkonig" ("Elf King"); and many more. For this edition, Stanley Appelbaum has provided new English translations, an Introduction and Commentary, and other apparatus.
