Goethe, Poet of the Germans (Goethe und kein Ende)
GRST 340
Fall 2010 not offered
Crosslisting: COL 340

This course provides an introduction to Germany's most important writer. The focus will be, first of all, on close reading of key texts from the poetry, prose, and drama. Goethe's biography and its sometimes revealing, sometimes problematic contextualization of the works will provide another major focus. Some attention will be given to the checkered reception of Goethe in German and Austrian literature, as well as to recent controversies concerning his reactionary politics.
