Italian Journey, 1786-1788
by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe W.H. Auden (Translator) Elizabeth Meyer (Translator)
- TRAVEL NARRATIVE
- 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.
