Faust, part one & part two by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe( Book )

13 editions published between 1965 and 1985 in English and held by 744 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As much poem as it is play, Faust is the spiritual quest of a soul determined to explore the very nature of Reality, a revolutionary work that refuses to accept limitations, but, like Romanticism itself, embraces all, the natural world of everyday life, as well as the Great World of universal experience, the macrocosm as well as the microcosm. In one aspect Faust records the journey of the feminine from its roots in the physical to the realm of Pure Idea, from animal to Eternal Feminine. Formation/Transformation is the road the play travels in its alchemical advance from base to exalted, from the unformed state to total individuation. Faust is the hero in whose being two contradictory forces collide. He is self-alienated man struggling to expand beyond the limitations of intellect and the known world, desperate to achieve a state, indeed mystical, where the opposites of Knowledge and Sensuality are One. Part One of Faust records that attempt in the context of earthly existence. Part Two unreels itself in the realm of myth, of classical antiquity, and of dream. Goethe's Faust has rightly been called the most audacious work in Western Civilization."--BOOK JACKET
Parzival by Wolfram( Book )

14 editions published between 1961 and 1990 in 3 languages and held by 632 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Parzival is a major medieval German epic poem attributed to the poet Wolfram von Eschenbach, written in the Middle High German language. The poem is commonly dated circa the first quarter of the 13th century. The poem is, in part, an adaptation of Chretien de Troyes? Perceval, the Story of the Grail and mainly centers on the Arthurian hero Parzival (Percival in English) and his long quest for the Holy Grail, following his initial failure to achieve it. A long middle section is devoted to Parzival's friend Gawan and his adventures defending himself from a false murder charge and winning the hand of the maiden Orgeluse. The poem continues to be read in Middle High German and translated into modern languages around the world. Among the most striking elements of the text are the scope of its plot and its emphasis on the virtues of compassion and spiritual questioning."--Www.ulike.net (Nov. 8, 2010)
