Goethe´s Work URL:

Of all of Goethe’s works, we are most familiar with his novel The Sorrow of Young Werther, which led the way to Romanticism, and his tragedy in verse Faust I, which generated some of the most important modern archetypes. From a present-day perspective, accustomed ad nauseam to Romantic clichés and the Romantic sensitivity, it is difficult to ascertain the extent to which Goethe caused an authentic aesthetic revolution with these works in contrast to the old stagnant canons. However, in other less accessible or lesser-known works to Spanish readers, Goethe demonstrated his ability to bring together the trends of the intellectual life of his time and reflect on the moral ambivalence of modernity. Inductively based on quotes and excerpts, this lecture will provide an approach to the complexity of his literary output.
