From the Yearbook Editors

Vol. 23 of the Goethe Yearbook is currently being copy-edited and will be on its way to the printer soon. It features a special section on the visual arts with contributions on the visual aesthetics of Goethe’s 1815 Proserpina production by Gabrielle Bersier; on Goethe’s Farbenlehre by Joel Lande; on the relationship between J.W. Goethe and C.G. Carus and their respective views on the representation of nature in art and science by Beate Allert; and on visual and verbal bricolage in Clemens Brentano’s Gockel, Hinkel und Gackeleia. by Catriona MacLeod.

In addition, there are also original contributions on Goethe and ancient mystery religions by Fred Amrine; on Goethe’s fairy-tale aesthetics by Jane Brown; on virginity and maternity in Goethe’s Werther by Lauren Nossett; on motherless creations in Goethe’s Faust by Wendy Nielsen; and on the concept of the mathematical infinite in Kant by John H. Smith.

We would like to use this opportunity to express our gratitude to Stanford University whose generous financial support made it possible to hire a copyeditor and thus has expedited the process considerably. We are now accepting contributions to Vol. 24. We hope to hear from many of you and particularly welcome contributions by younger scholars.

As always, the entire run of back issues is available on Project MUSE.
