Italienische Reise

Author: Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Publisher: Jazzybee Verlag
ISBN: 9783849683443
Release Date: 2016-09-26
Genre: Travel

Die Italienische Reise ist ein Reisebericht, in dem Johann Wolfgang von Goethe seinen Italienaufenthalt zwischen September 1786 und Mai 1788 beschreibt. Das zweiteilige Werk basiert auf seinen Reisetagebüchern, entstand jedoch erst wesentlich später, zwischen 1813 und 1817. Neben Dichtung und Wahrheit und Kampagne in Frankreich zählt es zu seinen autobiografischen Schriften. Chronologisch stimmt die Italienische Reise mit seinen Tagebuchaufzeichnungen weitgehend überein, ist im Gegensatz zu diesen jedoch stark stilisiert und entbehrt ihrer Ursprünglichkeit. Während Goethe die eigentliche Reise inkognito unternahm, tritt er im Reisebericht selbst als Erzähler in der ersten Person auf.
