KIRKUS REVIEW

The Goethe Bicentennial is the occasion of the reissue of this material which has not been available before in modern translation. The translator, R. O. Moon, supplies his own introduction, analyzing the personality and peculiar genius of Goethe, the sources from which this text is drawn, and the previous forms in which English translation appeared, the latest a revision of the 1908 Oxenford translation of 1847.
