In the English-speaking world Goethe is often described as a Romantic but strictly speaking he was a pre-Romantic. Goethe’s Sturm und Drang (Storm and Stress) work of the s preceded and influenced the Romantic movement, but by the time Romanticism developed in the late s, Goethe had moved on from Sturm und Drang, and he was very.

      For Goethe there is only one source of knowledge, the world of experience, in which the world of ideas is included. For him it is impossible to say, “experience and idea,” because to him the idea lies, through spiritual experience, before the spiritual eye in the same way that the sense world lies before the physical eye. Of the two giants, Goethe and Beethoven, who are the subject of this book, Beethoven is probably far better known to the English-speaking public than Goethe. There are two reasons for this. Beethoven addresses the world in the language of music, a universal language, which can be understood by many who have not made even an elementary study of it.

    spirit of Goethe's own conception of world literature as a deep- ly felt interchange among peoples and cultures. I recommend this book most emphatically and with highest praise, in the hope that after nearly two hundred years it will help Goethe's West-East Divan to make the breakthrough it deserves in the English-speaking world. Further to the themes of redemption and salvation in this great drama, are Goethe’s eerie premonitions of modern phenomena such as inflation and the creation of life by scientific synthesis. For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world.
