What is the best biography about Goethe
Three Goethe biographies
The clear and easy-to-understand Goethe portrait by journalist Anja Höfer contains many colorful illustrations, chronological tables, a selection bibliography and a register of names. It is therefore well suited to bring the poet, minister and natural scientist closer to younger readers in particular.
Anja Höfer: Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.
Deutscher Taschenbuch Verlag, Munich 1999.
160 pages, 14.90 DM.
The biography of the renowned literary scholar Dorothea Hölscher-Lohmeyer, who was awarded the gold medal of the Goethe Society in 1991 for her book "Faust and the World", is similarly structured and just as vividly written, albeit without pictures and chronological tables, but with more precise details .
Dorothea Hölscher - Lohmeyer: Johann Wolfgang Goethe.
C.H. Beck Verlag, Munich 1999.
144 pages, DM 14.80.
More critical of Goethe, because it sheds more light on the crises and failures of the "genius", is Karlheinz Schulz's "Biography in 16 Chapters", which is more than 600 pages long. If, for example, the author of "Faust" is portrayed as Narcissus stylizing himself, the monument and the myth of Goethe receive a few beneficial cracks.
