Postclassical Goethe and the Pleasure of the Senses
The great critic Max Kommerell claimed that Goethe’s late style is characterized by a “ scharfe Sinnlichkeit des Abstrakten.” With this remark, Kommerell draws two terms into close proximity, the unity or difference of which figures centrally in much of Goethe’s mature poetic and scientific writing. From his study of plant morphology to colors and meteorology, Goethe was preoccupied with the relation between general terms and the ceaseless mutations of particulars in nature. This problem also appears, albeit with different valences, in his post-classical lyric poetry as well as in Wilhelm Meisters Wanderjahre and Faust II. Papers for this panel might consider any aspect of Goethe’s late work that addresses the primacy of the senses in the human being’s perception of the external world. Questions that might be addressed include: do the poetic and analytic renderings of the particular require different modes of presentation? In what ways do the poetic texts investigate eros as an essential ingredient in human sensation, in scientific observation, and in the disclosure of form? What are the conflicts or lacunae between the senses, verbal description, and conceptual analysis? Do the lyric poem, the novel, or the drama reflect upon their own sensory apprehension? What is the overriding significance of the many scenes of sensory experience and pleasureful rapture in Goethe’s late works? Does the concept of the allegorical capture Goethe’s investigation of the senses, of their deliverances and their pleasures? Proposals by March 1 to Joel Lande (firstname.lastname@example.org).
