SELECT BIBLIOGRAPHY

Related Works of Goethe

Italian Journey, translated by W. H. Auden and Elizabeth Mayer ( 1962; Penguin Classics, 1970 and reprints). The work that the older Goethe composed from his documents of the time.

Erotic Poems, translated by David Luke with an introduction by Hans- Rudolf Vaget (Oxford World's Classics, 1997). Contains the Roman Elegies (see Introduction, pp. xxii-xxiii) and very properly includes the four elegies suppressed as improper in Goethe's lifetime and long afterwards, though the theory of where they would have fitted into the cycle is speculative and the renumbering unhelpful.

Selected Poems, translated by John Whaley with an introduction by Matthew Bell (Dent, 1998), gives a sense of the full range and power of Goethe's poetry.

Faust Part I, translated by David Luke (Oxford World's Classics, 1987).

Faust Part II, by the same translator (Oxford World's Classics, 1994).

Elective Affinities, translated by David Constantine (Oxford World's Classics, 1994).
