Shakespeare Connected - Our German Shakespeare!
1796/1811 - Goethe
This is a translation of extracts from Wilhelm Meister’s Apprenticeship (c.1796), in which Goethe's protagonist is (somewhat ecstatically) introduced to Shakespeare’s plays. The plays are received as “performances of some celestial genius, descending among men, to make them, by the mildest instructions, acquainted with themselves.”
