Book description

'Goethe Yearbook' 15 features an array of interdisciplinary essays, among them articles on Goethe and such topics as architecture, mineralogy, theatrical improvisation, and Ulrich von Hutten. Readers will also find two astute and erudite interpretations of key poems, 'Alexis und Dora' and 'Urworte. Orphisch,' as well as a compelling exploration of the legal, social, and economic issues pertaining to the question: 'Why Did Goethe Marry When He Did?' An interpretation of Goethe's 'Elective Affinities,' two essays on Schiller's plays, and an incisive analysis by Peter Uwe Hohendahl titled 'The New Man: Theories of Masculinity Around 1800' round out the volume.
