Goethe is considered as one of the greatest and most accessible of the romantic poets from Germany. The insights and occasions of his poems are common human ground, and communicated through a constantly fresh way with words. This selection gives a rich sampling from a lyrical life's work that ranged over love, science, nature, the cultures of antiquity, Persia and China, in poems that are German at its most eloquent and direct.
