This duel-language book contains the first English-language translation of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe's "Letters From Switzerland" to appear in over 100 years-- and it is the only version now in print. Also included is an introduction, the German-language text, a glossary, interpretive essay, selected bibliography, plus assorted photos and maps [180 pages]. Goethe's expedition through Switzerland and the Savoy during the autumn 1779 traversed a wild Alpine landscape decades before it became the popular "playground of Europe" for thrill-seeking Victorian travelers. For Germany's greatest literary figure, the rugged Alpine landscape was both a place of spiritual and scientific wonder, and an environment that would provide inspiration for many of Goethe's best loved writings.
