By the end of the nineteenth century, Johann Wolgang von Goethe was the world's most celebrated poet, novelist, critic and thinker. Today his name is echoed as that of a 'great man' alongside Plato, Montaigne and Shakespeare.

This book covers the last nine years of his life, partially spent having conversations with the young Johann Eckermann, who was thirty-one to Goethe's seventy-four, and who dedicated this time to recording Goethe's thoughts, ideas, observations and witticisms. The result is Conversations with Goethe, the most direct glimpse into the Great Man's mind, revealing a gentler, more human side to him, as well as his thoughts on art, science, poetry, philosophy and the minutiae of life.
