Gespräche mit Goethe Read À PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Summary Gespräche mit Goethe Z Gabor Audiobooks fr Livres Gesprche mit Goethe by Johann Peter Eckermann Eckermanns Gesprche mit Goethe sind ein Werk von fast unabsehbarer Wirkung eminent wichtig fr das Verstndnis von Goethes Werk und Persnlichkeit ein Monument seines Nachruhms In gewisser Weise gelten sie als eigenes Werk unseres grten Dichters Johann Peter Eckermann Gesprche mit Goethe Goethe sprach mit hoher Begeisterung ber Menander Nchst dem Sophokles sagte er kenne ich keinen der mir so lieb wre Er ist durchaus rein edel gro und heiter seine Anmut ist unerreichbar Da wir so wenig von ihm besitzen ist allerdings zu bedauern allein auch das Wenige ist unschtzbar und fr begabte Menschen viel daraus zu lernen Johann Peter Eckermann Gesprche mit Goethe Ein sandiger oder mit Sand gemischter Boden fuhr Goethe fort wo ihr nach allen Richtungen hin mchtige Wurzeln zu treiben vergnnt ist scheint ihr am gnstigst. Goethe was one of the most famous and greatest writers who ever lived and this incredible book is an insight into his life and thoughts at an old age one where he was nonetheless fully aware and writing the second part of Faust The book contains the memories of conversations between Goethe and Eckermann who was assisting him in various ways with his legacy In the book Goethe discusses a wide variety of topics from literature to science and comes across as probably the most elevated and cultured person whom I have ever encounteredVirtually every page is filled with Goethe s insight and genius which is of the highest order to use a phrase perhaps he would use It s hard to say exactly what my favorite parts were his comments on other authors are always brilliant his advice to other writers his comments on his prior works his discussions about science and his theories of color but perhaps most remarkable was his discussion of his ongoing progress on the second part of Faust which took him six years to write I also particularly liked the various excursions he took with Eckermann whether to neighboring towns or up into the mountains It also portrays this incredible literary world which frankly filled me with pangs of jealousy particularly the various homages he receives from other artists most notable a chest full of literary goodies from the great artist David in France The various Ambassadors and German royalty that visit as well as other famous writers and artists and the dinner parties and concert parties they hold describe a world that seems unfathomable in its richness The near constant discussion of theater which has odd similarities to how we talk about movies is also fascinating and his advice to dramatists as well as poets should also be consideredConcepts such as elevated and cultured and highest order have been shot down in our modernist era and yet here you have Goethe one of the greatest writers of all time describing literature and the world in that sense I felt while reading this that this moment in time and place was the true pinnacle of civilization and everything has been downhill since like some would say classical music after Beethoven Sometimes the book made me realize just how human great artists are and yet other parts were so rich and profound I felt this enormous gulf between myself and GoetheI recommend this book for anyone especially writers of any sort and people involved in the theater I would recommend reading both parts of Faust and probably some of his other works beforehand I had only read Wilhelm Meister but The Sorrows of Young Werther is mentioned freuently as are many of his poems dramas Tasso and Iphigenia and other works You might want to read some Schiller as well Robbers in particular Lord Byron is a big favorite of Goethe He says a truly cultured person has read the Greeks and some of the Romans and Shakespeare and MoliereThis was a great book to read towards the end of the Powys project Goethe is truly a giant and Faust is part of Columbia s core curriculum although it wasn t when I was there He had a wide range of interests from literature in all its forms poetry drama and novels and science he was a well known botanist and was interested in the science of colors The book had a lot of personal meaning for me he was someone who I truly admire and hope to emulate in the remainder of my life Having such a direct insight into someone so brilliant and incredible is a treat Boswell s Life of Johnson is not uite at the same level how rare it is that we get to sit at the table of the Muses and hear what they have to say and think

I am possibly in agreement with Nietzsche that this is the greatest book ever published in the German language I say this for a number of reasons1 German is the language of the Bildungsroman and how could there be any better Bildung than one conducted by Goethe himself2 On the flip side of this euation Eckermann s worship of Goethe produces a master student relationship unlike anything else in Western literature The pure positivity emanating from this book is a source of boundless creative energy3 It is a masterpiece of aesthetics as it is not merely the work of a single aesthete offering opinions nor of two aesthetes debating but of a combination of inspired conversation and hard contemplation Eckermann seriously believes in this stuff and through his seriousness he convinces you to believe in it too4 Compared to German classics like The Magic Mountain which are unspeakably deep but also grandilouent this is a book that speaks to the novice and the expert alike It introduces you to the idea of Germany and Europe through straightforward table talk while digging in as deep as any historian of thought would be willing to goSome of what Goethe says is actually absurd or self contradictory but when he is not contradicting himself he is offering brilliant insights In a single evening of chatting with Eckermann Goethe prophesied that America would build the Panama Canal England would come to own the Suez Canal and Germany would eventually have a Rhine Danube canal On another evening he transformed the concept of occasional poetry from an act performed in court for a patron to a tribute to the ultimate patron Nature He performs these daily marvels with joy and cheer It is a book you can drink from like a well

It s hard to say what s so great about Goethe One could list all the arts and sciences that he contributed to but looking honestly at those contributions none seems to have really remained of fruitful interest to our time at least not here in the US Perhaps the way his influence is currently most felt here is through Waldorf schools which are based on Rudolph Steiner s theories which were elaborations of Goethe s But while Waldorf schools seem to do a great job of helping kids turn into good human beings one can t say they re a major cultural force Faust I rarely see references to it selling one s soul to the devil in exchange for pleasure isn t of much concern to a culture that tends to confound pleasure with nearness to God Goethe himself believed that his theories about color would be of most lasting value to the world but these theories seem to be simply irrelevant nowadays though curiously not disproved And yet Goethe was a great man This will be as clear as a vast and cloudless sky to anyone who reads the conversations that he had with and that were diligently recorded by his protege and friend Johann Eckermann The first sign of Goethe s greatness is his enormous capacity to love and attentively notice the works and people whom he perceives as excellent Goethe pays homage to writers Schiller Lord Byron Voltaire many others visual artists most of whom aren t well known now statesmen the local Duke whom he loved and served and bafflingly but especially Napoleon and scientists Humboldt others Goethe is sharp in rebuking anyone who suggests that he is or that anyone but a thoroughly crazy and defective artist could be free from influences ie a self made man Goethe strongly asserts that every act is the result of many influences and the finer the act the finer the art the richly and deeply was it influenced The finest act the finest art is indeed hardly attributable to the person who did made it at all but rather becomes an expression of something superhuman which he calls the daemonic spirit This is all discussed with enormous playfulness geniality and modesty the second third and fourth signs of Goethe s greatness Also there are lots of contradictions here in Goethe s thinking which he is aware of but doesn t seem to mind terribly sign of greatness 5 The sixth sign of Goethe s greatness is his belief in what must be called for lack of a precise word magic It seems that Goethe didn t commit to any particular religion nor did he make up one of his own yet he certainly wasn t a materialist I think he didn t see a reason to codify or even to discuss at any length what for him was a living experience He simply took pleasure in his sense of the divine in nature and rejoiced in others ability to do so too Thankfully this divine in nature never becomes overwrought or forced but always feels uite simple and even somewhat peculiar as it should given the differences between the land from which he arose and that of most readers The seventh sign of Goethe s greatness is that he could become hilariously surly when discussing his detractors but he preferred and usually attained serenity I especially enjoyed his comments when asked why he didn t help defend Germany during the Napoleonic wars This is clearly a sour subject for Goethe but he doesn t try to weasel out of it He says that he did than enough for his country by writing great poems and that further a great poet like himself is a citizen of the world so can bear no enmity toward other nations especially a nation as cultured as France This surely unpopular explanation for his pacifism is actually scoffed at in an editorial footnote in my edition of Conversations and might still be controversial today Also relevant to today are Goethe s criteria for judging art though we would apply to movies his thoughts about theater and to pop music his thoughts about poetry Goethe again with many contradictions loved what was excellent genuine and uplifting He was the first to distinguish classical and romantic art I call the classic healthy and the romantic sickly Most modern productions are romantic not because they are new but because they are weak morbid and sickly And the antiue is classic not because it is old but because it is strong fresh joyous and healthy But later Classic and romanticare eually good the only point is to use these forms with judgment and to be capable of excellence you can be absurd in both and then one is as worthless as the other Eighth sign of greatness developed this fascinating trope but was unenslaved by it So there are my eight signs of Goethe s greatness I m sure a perceptive reader could add to the list Conversations with Goethe is worth the occasional minor eye glaze caused by many references to people most of us won t have heard of It s a lively encounter with a great man in the last year of his long deep life Perhaps his views will see a resurgence in popularity someday That would not be a bad thing for any of us
