Italian Journey: 1786-1788 (Penguin Classics) by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

in 1786, when he was already the acknowledged leader of the Sturm und Drang literary movement, Goethe set out on a journey to italy to fulfil a personal and artistic quest and to find relief from his responsibilities and the agonies of unrequited love. As he travelled to Venice, Rome, Naples and Sicily he wrote many letters, which he later used as the basis for the italian Journey. A journal full of fascinating observations on art and history, and the plants, landscape and the character of the local people he encountered, this is also a moving account of the psychological crisis from which Goethe emerged newly inspired to write the great works of his mature years.
