    I visited Goethe s house on the Frauenplan in Weimar many a weary year ago Wandering about, looking at his collections I had the sense that Goethe s interests were so massive and all encompassing that you couldn t escape their shadow.Reading Richard Friedenthal s Goethe his Life and Times, which is a traditional cradle to grave biography, I get a sense of Goethe as a genius The constant activity, the interests as manifested in his house on the Frauenplan that run so wide as to overshadow his era From Damm s book however I get the sense of a man, the complexities and problems of a person as flawed or as variedas any of us, as the rest of us.So for me this book that I bought at Frankfurt Am Main airport was the perfect introduction It starts from a very minor incident in Goethe s life and from that point explores his relationship with the town of Ilmenau, the Wanderer s Nachtleid ueber alle Gipfeln ist Ruh In allen Wipfeln Spurest du Kaum einen Hauch, Die Vogel schweigen im Walde, Warte nur balde Ruhest du auch Damm s method is progress through digression Each day, each journey has it s detour The Lewentoffs, the proposal to Ulrike and the Marienbad Elegies, the mine works at Ilmenau, Faust, the approach of death, his grandsons, the death of his son August Goethe.This is suggestive of the way memory works, also gives the sense of the closure of the circle as Goethe s life comes towards its end The Wanderer s Nachtleid itself becomes a central motive that allows Sigrid Damm, digression by digression to reach back and explore aspects of Goethe s life and to get there the book is structured around Goethe s last journey, out from Weimar with his two grandsons, he was 81 while they were 10 and 13, to Ilmenau Ilmenau has a double significance in the book here it was that Goethe wrote the Wanderer s Nachtleid on the wall of a small hut on the hills above the town as a young man, here also that he had been active in the attempt to revive mining in the town with the intention that mining would provide some means of income for the people around the town, some of whom he pointed out on his final visit to his grandsons lived on potatoes and goat s milk and saw neither bread nor beer from one year to the next Due to a shortage of capital and repeated flooding the mine could not be kept open This last visit then is a return to the failure of Goethe s practical endeavour but also a success as a poet and here we can t escape the ending of Faust The poem itself takes us from those peaks beneath which lay the mineral wealth that could transform the local economy to the deep and lasting peace through union with nature that all of us will come to in time And indeed the book closes with Goethe s death.Before we reach the end though we move, digression by digression, through Goethe s own relation to death, the loss of his son, Goethe s politics in passing his wide ranging contacts with generations of European writers including Sir Walter Scott, Byron and Mickiewicz in addition to every German writer imaginable, Goethe s self reinvention opening up genres and moving from Classicism, through Romanticism and heralding Modernism in the second part of Faust which itself was looking back the late middle ages yet closes with a vision of people obliged to work for their own betterment on Faust s canal and land reclamation project that to the contemporary reader tastes of the totalitarian regimes of our times.The author s progression is emotional as well as cerebral as one life reaches its conclusion, the sense of how Ein grosser Name ist eine gefaehrliche Erbschaft as Robert Schumann was to write about one of Goethe s grandson hangs over the grandsons as it hung over their father s brief life One small incident, this brief journey lasting a couple of days, is used to powerful effect to both illuminate and to explore the very long and extremely wide ranging life of a major European figure.

    This is a fabulous achievement by Sigrid Damm, a n East German author born in Gotha and professor of German literature in Jena and Berlin She in effect tells the story of Goethe s last decades, and especially his last trip within Thueringen, by integrating various writings not only of Goethe himself, but from correspondence, official documentation, and the writings of a wide range of Goethe s acquaintances Out of this comes a complicated and nuanced picture of one of Germany s greatest writers and of his heightening dialogue with his mortality A leitmotif is his beautiful poem, written while still a relatively young man Ueber allen Gipfeln ist Ruh which indicates both abiding and naturally existing peace as well as our ultimate small and inextricable fate as mortal creatures Goethe emerges from all of this not only as an impressive polymath counsellor to the Duke of Weimar and head of arts and culture of that Duchy, a geologist and physicist, a want to be development financier in a mine in Ilmenau unsuccessfully seeking to provide sustainable mining industry for the poor miners of that community, and of course Europe wide writer and poet , but also as a relatively selfish and vain man afraid to accompany those of his friends who died before him, and somewhat controlling over his money versus his family members Damm does a great job setting the context for Faust 2 Teil, which she shows as both amazingly honest as well as ahead of its time all the interesting because in his grasp of geology and physics, Goethe shows himself as being rather reactionary For those conscious of their own mortality, the book usefully shows us the way to being conscious of the need to accompany our friends and family through their challenges, as well as warning us to both focus on the important and to be careful of being seduced by romantic efforts to escape our mortality one of the sadder episodes is Goethe s efforts over three years as a mid 70s year old man to woo a very young woman in her 20s over subsequent summer visits in a Moravian baths town a German equivalent to the Bath of Jane Austen Not for nothing is Faust Goethe s crowning achievement autobiography 4 stars only because this book will not be for everyone a reasonable familiarity with German literature and an interest in how Goethe s life connected the classical German pre Romantic period absolutism with the modern Europe But if you ARE interested in this period, I highly recommend this book.
