Description

The novella Mozart's Journey to Prague (1855) is an imaginary recreation of the journey Mozart made from Vienna in 1787 to conduct the first performance of Don Giovanni. Set in the rococo world of the Bohemian nobility, it is a charming and playful evocation of Mozart's inner life and creative processes. Morike is one of Germany's greatest lyric poets after Goethe. His poetry combines classicism, romanticism, with elements of the traditional folk or faery tale. This edition contains all the poems for which he is most admired - including the comic idyll, The Auld Weathercock.

Author Biography

Eduard Morike was born in Ludwigsburg in 1804. He was a Protestant pastor before teaching literature at a seminary in Stuttgart. He spent the last decade of his life in increasing solitude, keen to avoid the fame his writing had brought him. David Luke is an Emeritus Fellow of Christ Church, Oxford. His translation of Faust won the European Poetry Translation Prize.
