Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832) was not only an exceptionally prolific and versatile writer. As a minister of state in the small duchy of Sachsen-Weimar he had to deal with issues arising from the French Revolution, the continental rule of Napoleon, and even the dawn of the industrial age. As a scientist he excelled in several fields, including botany and the theory of colours, pondering aspects of evolution well before Darwin. Based on his studies in literary theory he developed a concept of 'world literature' that fosters communication among writers of different nations. Among his early admirers in England and America were Lord Byron and Thomas Carlyle.About the Author:
Peter Boerner began his career as curator of the Goethe Museum in Dusseldorf. He edited a 45-volume set of Goethe's works and taught in the United States for thirty years, most recently at Indiana University.
