Seeking Wilhelm Meister

...

7 July 2011

Thank goodness for the university library.

I was surprised how difficult it is to find the Thomas Carlyle translation of Goethe’s Wilhelm Meister.  I’m also surprised the library is allowing this copy out for circulation, given its tattered-binding condition, though it does come with a handy book protector/case:

Penelope Fitzgerald‘s The Blue Flower has me down the path of must-read German romanticism.  (It is apparently also not easy to track down a good translation of Novalis’s Hymns to the Night.)
