About the Play:

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832) has been called "the greatest of the Germans." He is traditionally ranked with Dante and Shakespeare at the summit of literary eminence. Yet Goethe was also a lawyer and a scientist. The 3 plays of this volume – Egmont, Iphigenia in Tauris, and Torquato Tasso – were written during a period of Goethe's life when professional demands weighed most heavily on him. This volume will serve to illustrate the range of Goethe's long and unparallelled career.
