Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832) is universally recognized as a towering figure in world literature. This major new collection brings together poems from every decade of Goethe's writing life, in both their German originals and John Whaley's magnificent new translations--complete with their astonishing technical virtuosity, depth of feeling, wit, and occasional bawdry.
