Von Goethe, J. W. (n.d.). Hermann and Dorothea. Retrieved from http://self.gutenberg.org/


Excerpt
Introduction: There are few modern poems of any country so perfect in their kind as the ?Hermann and Dorothea? of Goethe. In clearness of characterization, in unity of tone, in the adjustment of background and foreground, in the conduct of the narrative, it conforms admirably to the strict canons of art; yet it preserves a freshness and spontaneity in its emotional appeal that are rare in works of so classical a perfection in form.
