German Literature in the 18th Century - Goethe: Approaches (Graduate)

Semester:

2013

You have to read Goethe! But how is this possible, given that the "Goethe" in the Sophienausgabe is 142 volumes thick, and the literature on Goethe fills up entire libraries? The seminar departs from this problem in order to find entries into the textual cosmos called "Goethe". The selection and compilation of Goethe-texts is, following the methodical premise of the seminar, already part and parcel of the Goethe-reading.
