My Editorial Preface to the English translation of Goethe’s correspondence with a child by Bettina von Arnim - 1837

Publishing an online version of the English translation of Bettina von Arnim's Letters to Goethe was a project I did in the early months of 2004. It was, in fact, a spin-off of my interest in Emerson, Thoreau and the New England Transcendentalists; among whom this was a 'cult' book.

This link will take you to my Preface (somewhat politically correct, as it now strikes me! - being from my pre-Christian era) - from which the book itself can be accessed:
