Originally published in 1952, as part of the Cambridge Plain Texts series, this volume contains essays by Johann Gottfried Herder (1744 1803). A key Enlightenment figure, and the early mentor of Goethe, he was a prominent instigator of the 'Storm and Stress' movement in eighteenth-century Germany. One of the key factors in the creation of this movement was the introduction of Shakespeare as a guiding force in German literature, and Herder's epoch-defining essay on Shakespeare is the central text in this volume. The core content of the volume is presented in the original German, with introductory notes written in English. It will be of value to anyone with an interest in German language and literature."
