Der arme Heinrich by Hartmann( Book )

8 editions published between 1895 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rainer Malkowski, der hoch angesehene Lyriker, hat Hartmanns mittelhochdeutsches Versepos, einem der Basistexte der deutschen Literatur, Seite für Seite einen modernen Text gegenübergestellt, der möglichst viel vom Original erkennbar macht und dessen Botschaft zugleich für uns entschlüsselt. Mit seiner rhythmisch durchkomponierten, dabei ganz unprätentiösen Diktion hat er dafür eine Sprache gefunden, die unmittelbar zu Herzen geht. Norbert Miller zieht in seinem Essay behutsame Linien zwischen alter und neuer Sprachform und der gewandelten Bildlichkeit im Angesicht eines zeitlosen Themas: Es geht um nichts Geringeres als die Verantwortung gegenüber dem Leben und den Umgang mit dem Tod

Faust is a classic of world literature, yet until now no English rendition of Goethe's philosophical and poetic drama has been able to capture its life, satire, irony, humor, and tragedy. Award-winning translator and critic Martin Greenberg here presents the first faithful, readable, and elegantly written version of Geothe's masterpiece available in English
Torquato Tasso : a play by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe( Book )

7 editions published in 1918 in German and English and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In dem Versdrama "Torquato Tasso", einem der literarischen Erträge der Italienreise, schuf Goethe das erste regelrechte Künstlerdrama der Weltliteratur. Dabei trägt der Künstlertypus, der in der Figur des Tasso gezeichnet wird, neben der Genialität auch Züge von Melancholie und Labilität und avanciert so zum Psychogramm eines schon modernen Dichters.
