This study provides a stimulating and accessible survey of this many-sided figure. The volume places Goethe in the context of the Germany and Europe of his lifetime. His literary work is covered in individual chapters on poetry, drama–with a separate chapter on Faust, prose fiction and autobiography. A wide-ranging survey of reception inside and outside Germany and an extensive guide to further reading complete the volume, which will appeal to students and specialists alike.
