By Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Las fiestas no son el tema crucial de Goethe, pero en el curso de sus viajes forzosamente tuvo que participar en algunas y dejar constancia de sus impresiones. Juan de Sola ha reunido, traducido y prologado en este volumen dos textos contrapuestos pero igualmente reveladores: El carnaval de Roma (1789), acompañado por las veinte ilustraciones en colour originales de Georg Melchior Kraus, y l. a. fiesta de san Roque en Bingen (1817). Dos espléndidas crónicas que, en conjunto, ofrecen una sugerente muestra de l. a. literatura de viajes de quien fue llamado «el príncipe de los poetas». Johann Wolfgang Goethe, hijo de una familia de los angeles alta burguesía, nació en Francfort en 1749, y murió en Weimar en 1832, universalmente reconocido y admirado. Entre una fecha y otra no solo se extienden dos grandes revoluciones históricas, sino que l. a. Ilustración, a través del Sturm und Drang y del clasicismo, ha dado paso al Romanticismo, que marcará el rumbo del hombre moderno. Su novela de juventud Las penas del joven Werther (1774; Alba Clásica núm. cxx) causó sensación en toda Europa. En Poesía y Verdad (1811-1830; Alba Clásica Maior núm. iii) dejó testimonio de su juventud. Su obra maestra en dos partes, Fausto (1772-1831), aglutina espléndidamente todas las etapas de su carrera.

Example text

They are sparing only a tithe of their strength. ' * * * And so the companies came and were hailed and cheered and passed through the Gate, men of the Outlands marching to defend the City of Gondor in a dark hour; but always too few, always less than hope looked for or need asked. The men of Ringló Vale behind the son of their lord, Dervorin striding on foot: three hundreds. From the uplands of Morthond, the great Blackroot Vale, tall Duinhir with his sons, Duilin and Derufin, and five hundred bowmen.

Many were already mounted. It would be a great company; for the king was leaving only a small garrison in the Burg, and all who could be spared were riding to the weapontake at Edoras. A thousand spears had indeed already ridden away at night; but still there would be some five hundred more to go with the king, for the most part men from the fields and dales of Westfold. A little apart the Rangers sat, silent, in an ordered company, armed with spear and bow and sword. They were clad in cloaks of dark grey, and their hoods were cast now over helm and head.

Whose shall the horn be? Who shall call them from the prey twilight, the forgotten people? The heir of him to whom the oath they swore. From the North shall he come, need shall drive him: he shall pass the Door to the Paths of the Dead. ' 'If you would understand them better, then I bid you come with me,' said Aragorn; 'for that way I now shall take. But I do not go gladly; only need drives me. ' 'I will go with you even on the Paths of the Dead, and to whatever, end they may lead,' said Gimli.
