Edited by J.P. Stern. Published 1983. ISBN: 9780854571123.
Of the eleven papers which appear in this volume, all but two were delivered between 1980 and 1983 at the Institute of Germanic Studies London. Corbet Stewart's and J.P. Stern's were read at the joint meeting at Easter 1982 of the Conference of University Teachers of German in Great Britain and Ireland and the English Goethe Society at Queen Mary College London. All, including the two written on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of Goethe's death, may be read as evidence that, governmentally-induced alarm and despondency notwithstanding, the continuity of German Studies in London is unimpaired.
