    Faust is one of the pillars of Western literature. This classic drama presents the story of the scholar Faust, tempted into a contract with the Devil in return for a life of sensuality and power. Enjoyment rules, until Faust’s emotions are stirred by a meeting with Gretchen, and the tragic outcome brings Part 1 to an end. Part 2, written much later in Goethe’s life, places his eponymous hero in a variety of unexpected circumstances, causing him to reflect on humanity and its attitudes to life and death.

    The Sorrows of Young Werther was Goethe's first major success, turning him from an unknown into a celebrated author practically overnight. Napoleon Bonaparte considered it one of the great works of European literature. He thought so highly of it that he wrote a soliloquy in Goethe's style in his youth and carried Werther with him on his campaigning to Egypt.

    Werther, a sensitive young artist, finds himself in Wahlheim, a quiet, attractive village in Germany where he seeks solace from the turmoils of love. It is a young spring, and he hopes that arcadian solitude will prove a genial balm to his mind. But his romantic tendency rules otherwise, and he falls in love with Charlotte - Lotte - even though he knows she is affianced to another.

    Goethe's masterpiece and perhaps the greatest work in German literature, Faust has made the legendary German alchemist one of the central myths of the Western world. Here indeed is a monumental Faust, an audacious man boldly wagering with the devil, Mephistopheles, that no magic, sensuality, experience or knowledge can lead him to a moment he would wish to last forever.

    "'Le affinità elettive' sono, di tutti i romanzi di Goethe, il più artisticamente perfetto. [...] Che cos'è l'affinità elettiva? Lo chiedo a un vocabolario, e leggo: 'è la proprietà di alcune sostanze di reagire tra loro formando composti nuovi'. Ci si chiede che cos'abbia a che vedere questo con un romanzo, dove sono in ballo personaggi umani. E la prima sorpresa è questa: che Goethe applica le leggi della chimica, delle scienze naturali, alla psicologia degli esseri umani. [...] Un romanzo positivo?

    Faust has long been considered one of the most important works of European literature ever published. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe began writing Faust in the 1770s while still a young man, spending most of his adult life on the project. Faust was finally finished almost 50 years later, near the end of his life. Faust is a philosophical drama full of humor, satire, and tragedy. The demon Mephistopheles makes a bet with God that he can lure Faust from the path of good.

Während eines Besuches bei der mittlerweile Verheirateten übermannen ihn die Gefühle, und das Drama nimmt seinen Lauf...

    Goethe was probably the greatest universal genius who ever lived. Although known primarily as a poet, playright, and novelist, he was also known for his work in anatomy, botany, color, art criticism, and jurisprudence. Many people are deterred from attempting to read anything by Goethe because of his extremely penetrating intelligence and dense prose. But his travel diary, Italian Journey, is by far easier to digest than anything else by him.

Es scheint, Goethe hat beim Schreiben dieser Worte schon den König der Vorleser vor sich gesehen.

    Composed almost entirely of letters written by Werther to his friend Wilhelm, The Sorrows of Young Werther is a heartbreaking narrative about a doomed love. Werther, a young artist driven more by the heart than by reason, is already enraptured with the elusive Charlotte when she marries another man better suited to her class. To keep Charlotte near, Werther befriends her husband - a bid that becomes a torturous reminder of all he’s lost.

    German short stories began in the late 18th century as brief, beautifully written moral fables. In the following century, style evolved toward realism in parallel with that of other European literature. From the lofty idealism of Goethe to the searing verisimilitude of Mann, German writers of all styles have left us some of the most arresting profiles of the human condition ever conceived.

    Wilhelm Meister verfällt schon in jungen Jahren mit Haut und Haaren dem Theater - eine Leidenschaft, die ihn nicht mehr loslassen wird: Kaum ist er erwachsen, kehrt er seinem bürgerlichen Leben den Rücken und taucht ein in die Welt des fahrenden Volkes, der Gaukler, Seiltänzer und Schauspieler. Erst 1910 stieß man durch Zufall auf die Abschrift eines Künstlerromans, der als Goethes "Urmeister" in die Literaturgeschichte eingehen sollte. Eine Sensation! In dieser epischen Lesung entfaltet sich die ganze Vorlesekunst des vielfach ausgezeichneten Sprechers Gert Westphal.
