|About the Book|
Classic poem in the original German. According to Wikipedia: Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (28 August 1749 â 22 March 1832) was a German writer. George Eliot called him Germanys greatest man of letters... and the last true polymath to walk the earth. Goethes works span the fields of poetry, drama, literature, theology, humanism, and science. Goethes magnum opus, lauded as one of the peaks of world literature, is the two-part drama Faust. Goethes other well-known literary works include his numerous poems, the Bildungsroman Wilhelm Meisters Apprenticeship and the epistolary novel The Sorrows of Young Werther.
