Overview

*Illustrated with pictures of Goethe, his life, and work
*Includes Table of Contents

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe is widely considered the most important German writer, but that would truly belittle the span of his work. In fact, Goethe dabbled in poetry, drama, literature, theology and philosophy on a global stage, taking a great interest in world literature and culture. For that reason, he is a worldy figure, not simply a German one.

Today Goethe is best remembered for his magnum opus, Faust, a two-part drama still considered one of the world’s greatest works. Goethe is also celebrated for many of his poems, including the Bildungsroman Wilhelm Meister's Apprenticeship, and novels like The Sorrows of Young Werther.

Made famous by Beethoven’s overture, Goethe’s Egmont is one of the classic works of Sturm und Drang literature, before he began writing what was considered Weimar Classic literature. In the title, Count Egmont leads an ultimately tragic rebellion against Spanish rule in the Netherlands. This edition of Goethe’s Egmont is specially formatted with a Table of Contents and pictures of Goethe, his life and work.
