A good theory doesn't explain phenomena, it predicts them; when Goethe's theory's predictions failed, he explained these failures away by saying that the eye is subjective, it "wants to see what it sees". But, nowadays, all this is mingled together, and nobody knows whence a thing comes. But in this chase after outward means of effect, all profound study, and all gradual and thorough development of the talent and the man from within, is entirely neglected. No matter where one lives in the world, one is drawn to the world that the writer describes.

Yet, at bottom, no real object is unpoetical, if the poet knows how to use it properly. By the Seventeenth century, the character portrayed changed from a wandering charlatan and swindler to an accomplished and well-connected Conversations with Goethe. In such a case, it would not only be desirable, but almost necessary, that a more rapid communication should be maintained between the eastern and western shores of North America, both by merchant-ships and men-of-war, than has hitherto been possible with the tedious, disagreeable, and expensive voyage round Cape Horn.


The Conversations with Goethe and the child, led by the warder of the castle, ascend the ruin, on the other side of which the lion is lying by the outer wall. Nevertheless, I still set some value on that youthful effort, because it at least shows that I knew how to choose a subject which was worthy of admiration. All this we must accept with equanimity, since this attitude, taken as a whole, is of great value to us.

National literature is now rather an unmeaning term; the epoch of World literature is at hand, and every one must strive to hasten its approach. I was astonished but not satisfied.

When the princess and the uncle ride by the booth, the people must come out and entreat the princess to honour it with a visit. But, besides,—it being found that the two German volumes would not, by any means, make two, yet were too much for one of the present series,—it seemed necessary, in some way, to compress or curtail the book.

I am no friend to such people, any more than I am a friend of a Louis XV. What does make this an occasionally uncomfortable read is the very uneven relationship between Eckermann and Goethe.
