I couldn t uite put to words which brings satisfaction relief and pure oy that i don t think many other authors uite exhibit Overall I dont see why to Arthur Schopenhauer sees this
AS ONE OF THE 4 BESTone of the 4 best but i see the overall enjoyment and reread value perhaps i will reread this and come to the same Redeeming the Republic Federalists Taxation and the Origins of the Constitution judgement perhaps Perhaps not the tightest ship of a novel but certainly all its intellectual cannons were blasting the world to bits Much in the same way as reading Balzac Tolstoy or Marx one feels that he or she is spending a sliver of time in the mind of genius whileourneying with Wilhelm I was particularly attracted by Goethe s expressions of Eastern philosophy especially in the Indenture I felt as though I was reading Lao Tzu and could certainly see the inspiration Herr Hesse must have found in ol Johann Wolfgang To which degree does Goethe s Wilhelm Meisters Lehrjahre the prototypical Bildungsroman speak to us today Maybe first of all as a counterweight to the fragmented postmodern condition Though I started reading this work mostly as a sort of historical document I found that it has to offer than ust that It s a fairly easy read I never uite got used to the stylized and archaic language though and especially in those parts that focuses on the inner state of the protagonist On the other hand Goethe s descriptions of the theatre and individual actors actually sometimes have an almost contemporary feel and so does his great wit and irony whenever it shines through Other parts of the book can be longwinded particularly those dealing with eg the ideals of pietism but even here the characters have some interesting traits and it also serves as an efficient contrast to the lighthearted life in the theatre group The sections and layers of the book that are influenced by freemasonry are a lot intriguing Throughout the book Goethe moves effortlessly from the subjective to the objective the individual versus the world the young Wilhelm comes crashing into a world he doesn t uite understand with high hopes for himself and with boundless naivet yet manages to learn from his many strange encounters and to build character and integrity slowly becoming his own person almost in spite of himself it would seem but still because of his innate character traits and the interaction with the outside world The novel can easily be seen as an expression of Goethe s Ganzheitsdenken and as for the development of the protagonist there is little of what can be characterized as idealistic loftiness to it as opposed to that of the protagonist himself but rather a gradual insight gained through his encounters with the various other characters and through his work Goethe aims to educate his reader as well as young Wilhelm While in the end Wilhelm Meister successfully concludes his apprenticeship I suppose it can be said that it is up to the individual reader to make a similar achievement This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution NonCommercial ShareAlike Commons Attribution NonCommercial ShareAlike Unported License This is the prototypical Bildungsroman the influence of Wilhelm Meister on global literary history can hardly be overestimated because with this text from 1795 Goethe defined the genre The I wouldn t have thought about reading Goethe if we hadn t been sitting in the rain last November talking about Nietzsche and we wouldn t have been talking about Nietzsche if Helen hadn t been trying to explain Steiner to me for the hundredth time and she wouldn t have been trying to explain Steiner to me if someone hadn t recently advised me to read Schopenhauer and I d discovered that you couldn t really understand Schopenhauer if you didn t understand Kant and she said the only thing she knew about Kant was that he d influenced Goethe who Nietzsche used as his model of the Ubermensch and who d also influenc. ?a a primeira versão de Os Anos de Peregrinação confessava «Wilhelm é certo não passa de um pobre diabo mas é com personagens destas ue melhor se deixam mostrar o ogo inconstante da vida e as inúmeras e diversas tarefas da existência e não com caracteres rígidos e á formados. ,

Wilhelm Meister s Apprenticeship is a legendary often referred to
as the first bildungsroman and hence the direct ancestor of such celebrated twentieth century novels as The Portrait of thethe first bildungsroman and hence the direct ancestor of such celebrated twentieth century novels as The Portrait of the as a Young Man Sons and Lovers and Look Homeward Angel The classic English language bildungsromans of the 20th century are autobiographical novels that describe the childhood and adolescent years of a young writer leaving him in his early twenties ready to embark on his literary career Wilhelm Meister s Apprenticeship is an altogether different animal describing the amorous adventures of a young man with a troupe of actors and is a confused messIn Goethe His Life and Times Richard Friedenthal offers an explanation of how Goethe came to produce such a dreadful dog s breakfast Between 1777 and 1785 Goethe wrote a book that was published as Wilhelm Meister s Theatrical Calling In the 1790 Goethe decided to revise the Theatrical Calling publishing it between 1795 and 1796 as the Apprenticeship For the second version Goethe changed both the characteristics and dramatic roles of many of the dramatis personae Thus in the final version the plot takes bizarre turns and the characters are wildy inconsistent in their actions Thematically the work zigs and zags about in appalling fashion In places Wilhelm Meister s Apprenticeship is like Jean Jacues Rousseau s Nouvelle Heloise The story of a troupe of itinerant actors that is similar to Paul Scarron s Roman Comiue There is a Masonic section that brings to mind Mozart s Magic Flute and Potocki s Lost Manuscript of Saragossa Finally Goethe throws in a manifesto arguing that Shakespearean drama must replace French Classicism in the theatres of EuropeWilhelm Meister s Apprenticeship has long been recognized as a brutal slog I find nothing to say in its defence This book is a monster starts out shallow but becomes enormous as it goes on Intensely romantic but full of German coldness The characters are vivid very real and each exists consistent in his or her own world An endless stream of ideas on art and life The bildungsroman is generally considered to have been created by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe in the 18th century with his novels Wilhelm Meister s Apprenticeship and The Sorrows of Young Werther The main theme of this genre is seeing The Protagonist Mature From protagonist mature from into adulthood and usually endure a series of challenges and obstacles along the way The hero of Wilhelm Meister s Apprenticeship dreams of a life in the theatre as exotic to him as space travel might seem to us When an actress breaks his heart he sets off with a touring company encountering strange characters such as Mignon an androgynous child and a gloomy harp playing minstrel whose songs Schubert set so beautifully Goethe s writing is simple elegant and uncluttered the naturalism lures us into a story that gets odder by the pageWhile there are coincidences mount and things are muddled by a book within the book that seems a complete digression I found this book appealing by its very strangeness It has been very influential and one writer hugely influenced by it surely was Franz Kafka So were Walter Scott James Hogg and Thomas Carlyle Goethe s sense of the uncanny found a receptive audience in 19th century Scotland It remains for twenty first century audiences to DECIDE FOR THEMSELVES IF IT STILL HAS THAT APPEAL for themselves if it still has that appeal Jonson observing that certain actors credited his rival Shakespeare with never blotting out a word of his writing retorted Would he had blotted out a thousand Wilhelm Meister s Apprenticeship from a modern perspectivewould benefit from easily ten times that many deletionsClearly this is not a novel for current tastes and prolixity is only one of its barriers to contemporary readership Another is its somnambulistic paci My second Goethe book Not. «Os Anos de Aprendizagem de Wilhelm Meister» é um romance do Goethe clássico ue dificilmente se deixa reduzir a uma fórmula vulnerável como a de romance de formação nem Goethe usou o termo nem este romance chega realmente a encenar de forma cabal a formação do seu problemático. .
