By Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Las fiestas no son el tema valuable de Goethe, pero en el curso de sus viajes forzosamente tuvo que participar en algunas y dejar constancia de sus impresiones. Juan de Sola ha reunido, traducido y prologado en este volumen dos textos contrapuestos pero igualmente reveladores: El carnaval de Roma (1789), acompañado por las veinte ilustraciones en colour originales de Georg Melchior Kraus, y los angeles fiesta de san Roque en Bingen (1817). Dos espléndidas crónicas que, en conjunto, ofrecen una sugerente muestra de l. a. literatura de viajes de quien fue llamado «el príncipe de los poetas». Johann Wolfgang Goethe, hijo de una familia de l. a. alta burguesía, nació en Francfort en 1749, y murió en Weimar en 1832, universalmente reconocido y admirado. Entre una fecha y otra no solo se extienden dos grandes revoluciones históricas, sino que l. a. Ilustración, a través del Sturm und Drang y del clasicismo, ha dado paso al Romanticismo, que marcará el rumbo del hombre moderno. Su novela de juventud Las penas del joven Werther (1774; Alba Clásica núm. cxx) causó sensación en toda Europa. En Poesía y Verdad (1811-1830; Alba Clásica Maior núm. iii) dejó testimonio de su juventud. Su obra maestra en dos partes, Fausto (1772-1831), aglutina espléndidamente todas las etapas de su carrera.

Extra info for El carnaval de Roma
That evening, Bernard exaggerates the encounter to Helmholtz, who sees his friend’s hypocrisy and boasting. As in the previous chapter, Helmholtz is ashamed for Bernard, and wishes he were less boastful and self-pitying. A week later, Bernard and Lenina take the Blue Pacific Rocket to Santa Fé in part 3. They spend the night there, and meet with the Warden of the Reservation the following morning. He lectures them on the specifics of the reservation: it covers 560,000 square kilometers and is divided into four Sub-Reservations, each contained by an electric fence that prevents escape (it kills on contact).
The last part of the chapter follows Lenina on an evening with John (Bernard is going out on a date himself, and asks Lenina to escort John to the Feelies). They go to see a Feely titled, “Three Weeks in a Helicopter. ” The story is that of a black man whose conditioning is wiped from his brain after a helicopter accident. He falls madly in love with a BetaPlus blonde, kidnaps her, and holds her captive in his helicopter for three weeks. She is rescued finally by three men, who send the man off to an Adult Re-Conditioning Centre (apparently this new society is prepared for incidents in which conditioning fails) and take the blonde as a mistress.
Henry answers with a stock response, sounding suspiciously like a hypnopaedic lesson: “All men are physico-chemically equal ... ” For this, of course, is no longer true in Huxley’s world. As they leave the Crematorium behind, neither Henry nor Lenina are disturbed by the thought of death; as Henry repeats, “there’s one thing we can be certain of; whoever he may have been, he was happy when he was alive. ” Back at Henry’s apartment, the couple eats dinner and takes soma with coffee after the meal.
