Now according to the rhyme scheme, the name “Goethe” (rhyming with Morgenröte) should follow the word fühlet (in German, the subject and verb are reversed here), but the stanza continues without a rhyme, though significantly, with Hatem And once again Hatem feels The breath of spring and summer’s heat. Goethe pastes the fair copy of the poems “East Wind” and “West Wind” into the original manuscript of the Divan, where the poem “Highly favored in your love” has already found a place.

It appeared just at the moment when Goethe had more enemies than friends among the literati and those who molded literary opinion. The writers Grabbe and Börne tore the Divan poems to pieces. Heinrich Heine, however, certainly not the most uncritical of poets, recognized their significance: “Goethe has rendered in verse the most intoxicating joie de vivre, and these verses are so light, so happy, so airy, so ethereal that we have to wonder how such a thing was possible . . , and then Goethe’s great thoughts emerge, pure and golden like the stars.

These are two wonderful poems, in the spirit both of Goethe’s verse and of Hafiz’s (in which Marianne, wonder of wonders, Chapter Two 52 had so quickly and deeply immersed herself ). They are poems equal to Goethe’s in merit and, in this case, perhaps even exceed Goethe’s in their warmth and devotion. ” In these coded poems by Marianne, there are individual lines and verses from poems by Hafiz and Goethe that are so artfully composed that, beyond the declaration of love and beyond a poetic game fraught with meaning, beautiful lyrics are born.
