Life as A Work of ArtBook - 2017
By captivating the intellectual life of late eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century Europe, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe put into language the anxieties and ambitions of a civilization on the cusp of modernity. Indeed, Goethe's unparalleled literary output would come to define the Romantic age. Safranski surveys Goethe's wide-ranging genius, and crafts a portrait of Goethe's inner life that illuminates both his written work and the turmoil and triumphs of his era.
