The circle of Creation will appear,
And move, as we deliberately impel,
From Heaven, across the World, to Hell!
Stride through the whole creation’s round,
And with considerate swiftness wander
From heaven, through this world, to the world down yonder.
It just doesn’t have the same ring to it.
This 'jest' is a treasure.
Translated into the original meters from the German, this gives a poetic strength to the work.
There are entire passages in the book that one would want to memorize. For example:
-Released from snow are ice and river,
-By the quickening glance of the gracious spring,
-The colors of hope to the valley cling,
-And weak old winter must himself shiver,
-Withdrawn to the mountains, a crownless king.-
Some modern readers may chafe at the word twists.
But Goethe was not writing something for today's jogger to take on a jet trip to pass the time.
He paints the human experience that we all go through in this masterpiece.
-------Frank Hickey, writer of the Max Royster crime novels of Pigtown Books
