Goethe Yearbook 7
A publication of the Goethe Society of North America, carrying Goethe criticism (and studies of his contemporaries); extensive book review section.
The Goethe Yearbook is a publication of the Goethe Society of North America, which was founded in 1980 to promote the study of Goethe and his contemporaries. Originally conceived as a vehicle for Goethe criticism in Englishduring the Cold War political tensions, when the most prestigious Goethe publication, the Goethe Jahrbuch, was not available to most Western scholars, the Yearbook subsequently gained the respect of the international community, and has published articles, in both English and German, by scholars from around the world; it is unique among other periodicals devoted to the 'Goethezeit' for its extensive book review section.
"One is immediately tempted to lavish praise solely for the fact that the offerings are not -- as is too often the case these days -- derivative exercises that reek of publication for promotion. . . . The Yearbook and its contributors have been remarkable by their fearless pursuit of new ideas and perspectives." COLLOQUIA GERMANICA
