"Der Anfang ist an allen Sachen schwer;/ Bei vielen Werken fällt er nicht ins Auge."
This blog takes its name from the German poet Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832), who is the subject of my scholarly research. Just as Goethe did not limit himself to poetry, so this blog will also be about many subjects.
Goethetc is mostly about Goethe and the 18th century; One Off is about other intellectual and personal interests. Sointula On My Mind has recently (August 2017) been added as a diary of my annual summer idyll.
