“Greenberg has accomplished a magnificent literary feat. He has taken a great German work, until now all but inaccessible to English readers, and made it into a sparkling English poem, full of verve and wit. Greenberg's translation lives; it is done in a modern idiom but with respect for the original text; I found it a joy to read.”—Irving Howe (on the earlier edition)
Capturing the sense, poetic variety, and tonal range of the German original in present-day English, Stuart Atkins’s translation presents the formal and rhythmic dexterity of Faust in all its richness and beauty, without recourse to archaisms or interpretive elaborations.
Featuring a new introduction by David Wellbery, this Princeton Classics edition of Faust is the definitive English version of a timeless masterpiece.
Goethe's themes of unrequited love, the pain of rejection, deepening despair, and their tragic consequences are as relevant today as when the novel was first published in 1774. His hugely influential novel informed the writing of, among others, Franz Kafka and Thomas Mann.
In translating The Sufferings of Young Werther, Corngold follows the German text closely, never knowingly using a word that was not current in English at the time the novel was written and yet maintaining a modern grace and flair. The result is an eagerly awaited translation that speaks to our time through the astonishing liveliness of Goethe's language—as well through the translator's own.
This volume does not have to be studied to be appreciated. The author's subjective theory of colors permits him to speak persuasively of color harmony and aesthetics. These notions may evoke a positive response on their merits, but even among those who regard them as pure fantasy, the grace and style of Goethe's exposition provide abundant rewards. Although his scientific reasoning on this subject has long since been dismissed, modern readers continue to appreciate the beauty and sweep of Goethe's conjectures regarding the connection between color and philosophical ideas. In addition, he offers insights into early 19th-century beliefs and modes of thought as well as a taste of European life during the Enlightenment.
The German author of Faust takes a detour from his usual literary endeavors and offers snippets of his musings on life, literature, science, nature, politics, and the human condition. Essential for fans of Goethe’s works, it provides a unique insight into the mind of the last true Renaissance man.

La lealtad, la fidelidad, las afinidades, el deseo y el fantasma del adulterio se convocan en la trama de esta magnífica novela, cuya modernidad y lucidez a la hora de examinar las relaciones humanas siguen siendo sobrecogedoras.

Some subjects include “Never Compete,” “The Art of Letting Things Alone,” and “Anticipate Injuries and Turn Them into Favours.”

As I am taught by my muse, carefully sort them in plots:
Fertile branches, whose product is golden fruit of my lifetime,
Set here in happier years, tended with pleasure today.
You, stand here at my side, good Priapus albeit from thieves I've
Nothing to fear. Freely pluck, whosoever would eat.
Hypocrites, those are the ones! If weakened with shame and bad conscience
One of those criminals comes, squinting out over my garden,
Bridling at nature's pure fruit, punish the knave in his hindparts,
Using the stake which so red rises there at your loins.
There are few modern poems of any country so perfect in their kind as the "Hermann and Dorothea" of Goethe. In clearness of characterization, in unity of tone, in the adjustment of background and foreground, in the conduct of the narrative, it conforms admirably to the strict canons of art; yet it preserves a freshness and spontaneity in its emotional appeal that are rare in works of so classical a perfection in form.
The basis of the poem is a historical incident. In the year 1731 the Archbishop of Salzburg drove out of his diocese a thousand Protestants, who took refuge in South Germany, and among whom was a girl who became the bride of the son of a rich burgher. The occasion of the girl's exile was changed by Goethe to more recent times, and in the poem she is represented as a German from the west bank of the Rhine fleeing from the turmoil caused by the French Revolution. The political element is not a mere background, but is woven into the plot with consummate skill, being used, at one point, for example, in the characterization of Dorothea, who before the time of her appearance in the poem has been deprived of her first betrothed by the guillotine; and, at another, in furnishing a telling contrast between the revolutionary uproar in France and the settled peace of the German village.
The characters of the father and the minister Goethe took over from the original incident, the mother he invented, and the apothecary he made to stand for a group of friends. But all of these persons, as well as the two lovers, are recreated, and this so skillfully that while they are made notably familiar to us as individuals, they are no less significant as permanent types of human nature. The hexameter measure which he employed, and which is retained in the present translation, he handled with such charm that it has since seemed the natural verse for the domestic idyl—witness the obvious imitation of this, as of other features of the poem, in Longfellow's "Evangeline."
Da questo 'classico' di grande bellezza, letto magistralmente dall'attore Luigi Marangoni, i giovani possono imparare ancora molto sul sentimento amoroso e sull'atteggiamento verso la Natura, come ha scritto il grande filosofo del XX° secolo Gyõrgy Lukàcs: 'Il Werther è concepito generalmente come un romanzo d'amore. A ragione? Sì, il Werther è uno dei più importanti romanzi d'amore della letteratura universale. Ma, come ogni rappresentazione poeticamente grande della tragedia d'amore, anche il Werther è molto di più di una mera tragedia amorosa. Al giovane Goethe riesce di inserire organicamente in questo conflitto d'amore tutti i grandi problemi della lotta per lo sviluppo dell'individuo. La tragedia amorosa del Werther è la tragica esplosione di tutte le passioni che di solito si presentano nella vita divise, isolate, astratte; qui però sono fuse nel fuoco della passione amorosa in un'unica massa incandescente e luminosa.'
Scritto alla fine del ‘700 è ancora un testo attualissimo che esplora l'entusiasmo, la gioia ma anche le pene e le confusioni dei giovani innamorati. Da questo 'classico' di grande bellezza i giovani possono imparare ancora molto sul sentimento amoroso e sull'atteggiamento verso la Natura. (Versione integrale)

Kurz darauf wollte Aubrey wieder einen Ausflug machen, der ihn einige Stunden beschäftigen konnte; als die Leute den Namen des Ortes hörten, baten sie ihn dringend, nur nicht des Nachts zurückzukehren, weil er durch einen Wald reiten müsse, wo sich kein Grieche nach Sonnenuntergang zu verweilen pflege. Hier hielten nämlich die Vampyre ihre nächtlichen Orgien, und wehe dem, der ihnen dabei begegnete. Die Leute entsetzten sich, als er es wagte, über die Gewalt unterirdischer Mächte zu spotten, und so schwieg er.

So rennt und läuft nun ein jeder, Um den traurigen Zug der armen Vertriebnen zu sehen. Bis zum Dammweg, welchen sie ziehn, ist's immer ein Stündchen, Und da läuft man hinab, im heißen Staube des Mittags.
Möcht' ich mich doch nicht rühren vom Platz, um zu sehen das Elend Guter fliehender Menschen, die nun, mit geretteter Habe, Leider, das überrheinische Land, das schöne, verlassend, Zu uns herüberkommen und durch den glücklichen Winkel Dieses fruchtbaren Tals und seiner Krümmungen wandern. Trefflich hast du gehandelt, o Frau, daß du milde den Sohn fort Schicktest, mit altem Linnen und etwas Essen und Trinken, Um es den Armen zu spenden; denn Geben ist Sache des Reichen. Was der Junge doch fährt!
und wie er bändigt die Hengste! Sehr gut nimmt das Kütschchen sich aus, das neue; bequemlich Säßen viere darin, und auf dem Bocke der Kutscher.
Diesmal fuhr er allein; wie rollt es leicht um die Ecke!" So sprach, unter dem Tore des Hauses sitzend am Markte, Wohlbehaglich, zur Frau der Wirt zum Goldenen Löwen.
As an old servant, as confidant, counsellor, manager, and housekeeper, Barbara assumed the privilege of opening seals; and this evening she had the less been able to restrain her curiosity, as the favor of the open-handed gallant was more a matter of anxiety with herself than with her mistress. On breaking up the packet, she had found, with unfeigned satisfaction, that it held a piece of fine muslin and some ribbons of the newest fashion, for Mariana; with a quantity of calico, two or three neckerchiefs, and a moderate rouleau of money, for herself. Her esteem for the absent Norberg was of course unbounded: she meditated only how she might best present him to the mind of Mariana, best bring to her recollection what she owed him, and what he had a right to expect from her fidelity and thankfulness.
The muslin, with the ribbons half unrolled, to set it off by their colors, lay like a Christmas present on the small table; the position of the lights increased the glitter of the gilt; all was in order, when the old woman heard Mariana's step on the stairs, and hastened to meet her. But what was her disappointment, when the little female officer, without deigning to regard her caresses, rushed past her with unusual speed and agitation, threw her hat and sword upon the table, and walked hastily up and down, bestowing not a look on the lights, or any portion of the apparatus.
Perhaps the most profound treatment of the legend in Goethe's Faust, a dramatic poem that incorporates the story's themes of wickedness and mysticism and draws on an immense range of theological, mythological, philosophical, political, and other cultural sources.
The present volume reproduces Part One (first published in 1808), which tells of Faust's despair, his pact with Mephistopheles and his love for Gretchen. Containing a vast array of poetic styles — epic, lyric, dramatic, as well as operatic and balletic elements — the poem is one of the supreme achievements of Western literature.
