|Old Economy Village|
Goethe seemed to have taken a lesson from this failure, at least for his novel. Thus, there are no humanists, writers, or painters among the emigres. The "Auswandererstaat" is composed of men prepared to pursue useful trades, thus a colony modeled after George Rapp's Harmonists, united in this case by artisanal skills.
