The studies refer to a broad range of different literary genres - travel literature, elegy, epigram, novel, artist biography, drama - and extend their purview to embrace biography and autobiography alongside fictional texts. In so doing they are able to document the material, historical and intellectual foundations upon which the highly detailed image of Italy in Goethes Weimar was based.
