REVIEW FOR GOETHE'S 260TH BIRTHDAY CELEBRATIONS
On the eve of the 260th birthday celebration of Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe, IGNA and Goethe-Zentrum Hyderabad are commemorating the German master through a series of activities, including video presentations and talks, accompanied by high tea on 28th August. The celebrations will start at 5pm.

The evening will feature readings of Goethe's works by Their Little Theatre group, a screening of a documentary on his life, and talks by highly-placed personalities, including the Director of the Goethe Zentrum institutes of South Asia.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe was a German writer and, according to George Eliot, 'Germany’s greatest man of letters...and the last true polymath to walk the earth.' Goethe’s works span the fields of poetry, drama, literature, theology, philosophy, humanism and science. Goethe’s magnum opus, lauded as one of the peaks of world literature, is the two-part drama, Faust. Goethe’s other well-known literary works include his numerous poems, the Bildungsroman Wilhelm Meister’s Apprenticeship, and the epistolary novel The Sorrows of Young Werther.

Goethe was one of the key figures of German literature and the movement of Weimar Classicism in the late 18th and early 19th centuries; this movement coincides with Enlightenment, Sentimentality, Sturm Und Drang and Romanticism. Author of the scientific text Theory of Colours, his influential ideas on plant and animal morphology and homology were extended and developed by 19th century naturalists, including Charles Darwin. He has had an influence on German philosophy too.
