«Er hatte sie von klein auf gekannt…». Adele Schopenhauer e Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Francesca Fabbri


Adele Schopenhauer, the philosopher’s sister and daughter of the successful novelist Johanna, was a writer and an artist as well, but her production in both fields remains little known, partly because she often used pseudonyms. This essay wants to take a closer and in many cases first look at parts of her work from the 1820s on. Adele Schopenhauer grew up in Weimar and was very close to Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, who became a sort of father figure for her. She was an active participant in the German culture between Classicism and Romanticism, as well as an important example of woman artist and writer: this is why her work deserves to be rediscovered.
