Short Desription

This new translation by an award-winning translator rescues Goethe’s collection of stories -- modelled on the Decameron -- from being out of print in English. First published in 1795, this is one of the most intriguing creations of Goethe’s free-wheeling, visually oriented fancy. A family of German nobles have been forced from their home on the Rhine by the French Revolution. Their young son Karl supports the revolution and ideals, and argues with the other men. The Baroness saves the situation by suggesting they tell stories to each other. There are seven in all: two short ghost stories, two amorous anecdotes and two moral tales, all concluded with the fantastic, symbolic, allegorical Fairy Tale.

Goethe clothed our modern existence with poetry. -- Ralph Waldo Emerson

Goethe was a glorious specimen of a man. -- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Who dares write about Goethe? Insects will buzz round the colossus, but not I. I take my hat off and hold my tongue. -- George Bernard Shaw
