(p.35) ‘… without losing sight of the whole’: Said and Goethe
Postcolonial Poetics

Matthias Zach

Liverpool University Press

This chapter examines the development of Edward Said's position on Goethe, beginning with Orientalism but then moving on to more recent texts. The analysis focuses on the tensions and transformations in Said's position while also reading Said's treatment of Goethe as a reflection on the relationship between the formal and generic qualities of the literary text and its political dimension.

Keywords:   Edward Said, Goethe, Orientalism, literary text, political dimension
