Ropean writersThroughout his long hectic and astonishingly varied life Johann Wolfgang von Goethewould jot down his passing thoughts on theatre programmes visiting cards draft manuscripts and even bills Goethe was probably the last true 'Renaissance Man' Although employed as a Privy Councillor at the Duke of Weimar's court where he helped oversee major mining road building and irrigation projects he also painted directed plays carried out research in anatomy botany and optics and still found time to produce masterpieces in every literary genre His maxims and reflections reveal not only some of his deepest thoughts on art ethics literature and natural science but also his immediate reactions to books chance encounters or his administrative work With a freshness and immediacy which vividly conjure up Goethe the man they make an ideal introduction to one of the greatest of European. The man must be the most clever man that ever lived Some maxims are very pretentious some are too complicated some are overblown but I must admit some are very fine He seemed expert in everything You must dig deep and on the end you will find some gold nuggets I read this book occasionally and is a companion piece to Gratian Balthasar Chesterton or CS Lewis Definitely a must read
