Italian Journey, 1786-1788

Italian Journey, 1786-1788

by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe  •  W.H. Auden (Translator)  •  Elizabeth Meyer (Translator)

  • TRAVEL NARRATIVE
  • 1992
  • PAPER
  • 498 PAGES

The journals and letters from Goethe's 'grand tour' of southern Italy as a 37-year-old. There's some serious intellectual sledding here, but in addition to his musing on philosophy and art, Gooethe includes some wonderful writing on the Italian landscape. And it's all made easier by a lovely translation by W.H. Auden and Elizabeth Meyer.  (ITL144, $18.00)
