Conversations of German refugees

Conversations of German refugees

Goethe, Johann Wolfgang von, 1749-1832; Heurck, Jan Van; Brown, Jane K., 1943-; Winston, Krishna

These two narrative cycles, both written during a highpoint of Goethe's career, address various social issues and reveal his experimentation with narrative and perspective. A traditional cycle of novellas, "Conversations of German Refugees" deals with the impact and significance of the French Revolution and suggests Goethe's ideas on the social function of his art. Goethe's last novel, "Wilhelm Meister's Journeyman Years" is a sequel to "Wilhelm Meister's Apprenticeship" and to "Conversations of German Refugees" and is considered to be his most remarkable novel in form
