it was amazing

This author is obviously enamoured of Goethe. BUT, other one chapter that rambled on - passionately - defending Goethe's incorrect and pigheaded stance on optics, this is an excellent book. It does a really good job of conveying the times, his peers, political activities in Germany and surrounding countries, his family issues - really all encompassing. And, even though it is very dated, it is quite readable.
