Goethe: La letteratura come viaggio

Marino Freschi

Abstract


As a young man, Goethe was called "Wanderer" because of his love for travels, especially on foot. This enthusiasm never left him and deeply influenced his whole production, both narrative and poems. The travel, as a symbol of the human destiny, is the most conspicuous metaphor for the authentic meaning of his poetry. It surfaces in many of his works, both in verses and prose, since his Sturm und Drang debut and up to the Wilhelm Meisters Wanderjahre (1829), where the fundamental experience of travel is evident already in the title.
