Johann Wolfgang von Goethe 1749-1832

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, who studied law in college, not only became one of history's most well- known authors, but also studied geology, botany, and anatomy during his career as a lawyer and writer.

He is best known for his play Faust, but he also wrote fiction such as Hermann and Dorothea as well as numerous poems. He was invited to be a court writer by Count Karl August at Weimer in 1775, writing plays and operettas for the nobility, all while continuing studies in other fields.

Inspired by varied subjects from Greek mythology to alchemy, Goethe remains as one of the most varied and interesting authors whose work continues to inspire today.
