Containing the letters and diaries that Goethe wrote during his journey to Italy at age thirty-seven, Italian Journey reveals his tremendous range of interests. His writings cover literature, art history and his own struggle to be a painter, various sciences and political events, personal encounters, and the Italian landscape. "In Rome," Goethe wrote, "I first found myself, for the first time I achieved inner harmony...." For Goethe the writer, this temporal and spiritual journey was at the root of his development from Sturm und Drang to classicism, a decisive point in his life and the history of German literature.

Die Italienische Reise ist ein Reisebericht, in dem Johann Wolfgang von Goethe seinen Italienaufenthalt zwischen September 1786 und Mai 1788 beschreibt. Das zweiteilige Werk basiert auf seinen Reisetagebüchern, entstand jedoch erst wesentlich später, zwischen 1813 und 1817. Neben Dichtung und Wahrheit und Kampagne in Frankreich zählt es zu seinen autobiografischen Schriften. Chronologisch stimmt die Italienische Reise mit seinen Tagebuchaufzeichnungen weitgehend überein, ist im Gegensatz zu diesen jedoch stark stilisiert und entbehrt ihrer Ursprünglichkeit. Während Goethe die eigentliche Reise inkognito unternahm, tritt er im Reisebericht selbst als Erzähler in der ersten Person auf.

Das Goethe-Buch für unsere Zeit: Rüdiger Safranski nähert sich dem letzten Universalgenie aus den primären Quellen – Werke, Briefe, Tagebücher, Gespräche, Aufzeichnungen von Zeitgenossen. So wird Goethe ungewohnt lebendig: Ein junger Mann aus gutem Hause, dem Studentenleben zugetan und dauerverliebt, wird Bestsellerautor, bekommt eine gutdotierte Stellung, dilettiert in Naturforschungen, flüchtet nach Italien, lebt in wilder Ehe – und bei alledem schreibt er seine unvergesslichen Werke. Doch er wollte noch mehr: Das Leben selbst sollte zum Kunstwerk werden. Safranskis souverän geschriebenes Buch macht uns zu Zeitgenossen dieses Menschen und schildert eindringlich, wie Goethe sich zu Goethe gemacht hat.

Imaging Italy Through the Eyes of Contemporary Australian Travellers (1990-2010)

For centuries Italy has been the destination of a lifetime for an endless stream of travellers. This book – focussing on the experience of contemporary Australian intellectuals – explores an aspect as of yet scarcely studied within the global phenomenon of travel to Italy, and discovers an image of the country starkly different from the one that prevailed in previous writings. From the beginning of the 1990s onwards there has been a sizeable output of books by Australian writers set in or about Italy. After a meticulous examination of these works, Roberta Trapè has selected and analysed those that she considers the most interesting examples of Australians’ continuing fascination with Italy – works of Jeffrey Smart and Shirley Hazzard, and of Robert Dessaix and Peter Robb. Examining the ways the four authors describe Italian places, Imaging Italy looks into what it is that continues to attract Australian writers and artists to the country, and tries to detect new trends in their attitude towards it. The image of Italy that emerges from the most recent works is, no doubt, a superb picture – not flattering but certainly not false – of its contemporary times.

A Tribute to Brian Goodwin

Professor Brian Goodwin was a visionary biologist, mathematician and philosopher. Born in Canada in 1931, he studied biology at McGill University then for his PhD at Oxford under the eminent biologist Conrad Waddington. Understanding organisms as dynamic wholes, he worked to develop an alternate view to extreme Darwinism based solely on genetic factors. His evolutionary vision was centred more on archetypes than ancestors and cooperation rather than competition. As a scientist Brian's work was groundbreaking and highly influential. He was a pioneer in the field of theoretical biology, and a founding member of the prestigious Santa Fe Institute. He appeared often in debates with prominent figures such as Richard Dawkins, Stephen Jay Gould and Lewis Wolpert. In later years he was made a founding fellow at Schumacher College, Totnes, UK, where he taught holistic science and completed his last book, Nature's Due: Healing Our Fragmented Culture (Floris Books 2007). He died in July 2009. This tribute to the life and work of Brian Goodwin has contributions from eminent scholars and academi around the world, dealing with his research on pattern and form in biology and the metaphysical principles that guided him. It also includes an interview with him. The book honours both his work and personal memories of a much loved and respected colleague. Contributors include: Stuart Kauffman, Lewis Wolpert, Fritjof Capra, Margaret Boden, Michael Ruse, Fred Cummings, Mae-wan Ho, Philip Franses, Stephan Harding, Nick Monk, Claudio Stern and Johannes Jaeger

Between Christmas and new year of 1817 the eccentric painter, B.R. Haydon, gave a famous dinner party. His guests included three of the greatest literary stars of the age: the poets John Keats and William Wordsworth and the essayist and wit Charles Lamb. They recited poetry, took part in ridiculous antics, indulged in high-minded discussions - with such displays of brilliance that the party became known as the Immortal Dinner. Penelope Hughes-Hallett celebrates this famous evening, setting it against a backdrop of change, reflected in the preoccupations of the illustrious diners. A compelling and sympathetic picture emerges of these rare spirits and the age which created them.

Dans ces jours malheureux qui eurent pour l’Allemagne, pour l’Europe, et même pour le monde entier, les plus tristes conséquences ; quand l’armée des Français pénétra dans notre patrie par un passage mal gardé, une famille noble quitta les domaines . qu’elle avait dans ces contrées, et s’enfuit au delà du Rhin, pour échapper aux persécutions qui menaçaient toutes les personnes de qualité, auxquelles on faisait un crime de garder avec joie et respect le souvenir de leurs ancêtres, et de posséder divers avantages qu’un sage père de famille était heureux de procurer à ses enfants et à ses descendants.
