One thought on “Roman Elegies

  1. Hirdesh

    Good poems and massive poetic devices.I like as it flows from persons to god.From Germany to Rome.Good lines World would not be the world,Rome would cease to be Rome In the end you poor girls are the ones who are sure to be cheated So said my father although Boy, won t you light me a lamp But dear master, there s light in the sky yetDon t waste your oil and the wick Don t close the shutters so soonOnly the houses are blocking the sun there, it s not yet the mountainsUntil the curfew shall ring, [...]

    Heard about this poem from a friend I m not used to reading a book that s written the way this was The wording writing style alone will put some ppl off I didn t get most of it, but I did understand some and got the gist of it I m rating it like I did because it was well written, that is to say others adapt to this writing style like Shakespeare will probably love it I did like the intimacy scenes and how they were written So that s another reason for my rating.

    The Roman Elegies first produced as the Erotica Romana, is a collection of twentyfour poems of an erotic sexual nature depicting the Italian and classical cultures of the time There are also erotic poems to the author s lover whom he picked up in his travles I would recommend this to all The language and structure of the poems are beautiful and grand.Enjoy and Be Blessed.Diamond

    Cito el prefacio de Jes s Mun rriz, traductor y editor de este volumen Cuando Goethe entreg a Schiller estas Eleg as romanas para su publicaci n en la revista Die Horen , ste, probablemente escandalizado por algunos de los poemas, se los dio a leer tambi n a Herder, quien cometn que si los publicaba, su revista pasar a de ser conocida como Die horen Las horas a ser llamada Die Huren Las putas.Poes a amorosa, basada en los metros cl sicos latinos, en esta traducci n Jes s Mun rriz sigue la cl sic [...]

    Goethe was a name I d encountered in passing, primarily as a philosopher, but I d never read after reading this one poem it s something I intend to rectify.I am one of the most unromantic, unsentimental people around hearts and flowers aren t for me This poem doesn t have them It has love, passion, adoration, care and understanding He intertwines Amor and Roma with his love and passion for his then secret lover as well his love of Classics and of his work What other poets supply with hearts and [...]

    Let my thoughts rest on your form Please close your eyes They re inebriation, confusion, they rob meAll too soon of the joy quiet reflection affords It s so beautiful you want to keep going back to it, reading some certain stanzas over and over again Like visual beauty, you don t get tired of it Rich and moving too Touches you deeply if you re in love, or if you want to fall in love what a cheesy thing to say, but it s true Another good thing is that it s free in Kindle Store Rome thou art a who [...]

    It is a good thing I had recently refreshed my knowledge of greco roman mythology, otherwise the majority of the poems would have remained pretty opaque The Roman Elegies mark a turning point in Goethe s bibliography, and biography as he was rediscovering the love for his art, living and, most importantly the fair sex They also mark the beginning of his collaboration and friendship with Schiller The contents of the poems will not be considered scandalous any by the modern reader, but even aside [...]

    The epilogue was shocking I didn t expect something like that from him Nor do the girls take offense when they see me by no means the matrons.None finds me ugly today, though I am monstrously strong.Half a foot long, as reward, your glorious rod dear poet Proudly shall strut from your loins, when but your dearest commands,Nor shall your member grow weary until you ve enjoyed the full dozenArtful positions the great poet Philainis describes.The prologue, the epilogue the 3rd and the 7th poem were [...]

    Someday I hope to read these poems in the original German For now, I m grateful for the translation, and for the translator s elucidating introduction.

    Wow, what words Had Ariadne lain thus, Theseus never had fled Only a single kiss for these lips and then, O Theseus, leave her Look at her eyes she s awake Now you re eternally bound Even the woman we love may afford us uncertain enjoyment Nowhere can feminine lap safely encouch a man s head.Matrimonial bed s insecure and so s fornication Husband, lover and wife pass to each other the hurt Cupid in my heart comes first Ah, to uphold one s respectable name is not easy Secrecy is for a man most im [...]

    Therefore, ye living, rejoice that love keeps you warm for a while yet, until cold Let he anoints, captures your foot in its flight Cupid is always a scoundrel, and if you believe him he ll cheat you Wasn t antiquity young when those fortunate Ancients were living Love in our hearts makes us one.

    No aprendo acaso viendo las formas de los dulces pechos Acariciando de cintura hacia abajo Ahora comprendo el m rmol reflexiono y comparo con mano que ve siento veo con ojo sintiente V

    Me encantaron sus novelas, Fausto, wherter tendr que leer estos poemas m s detenidamente, Goethe fue un magn fico escritor, sin duda alguna que esto tiene algo m d.

    Definitely worth reading in German instead of English if you can It s his ode to a culture lost and quite beautiful if you get the allusions.
