The tragic existence of August von Goethe – Anne Weber tells the story of a son and his struggle for independence.
The son of a famous father and a mother from the wrong class – August von Goethe could not escape the shadow of his family, wearing himself down and eventually going to ruin because of it. He was a pale boy who failed to find his own way, his own life.
After her celebrated novel Luft und Liebe, Anne Weber, “a very special literary talent” (Ulrich Wickert, NDR Kultur), has chosen the form of a mental theatre, in which she presents the life of an eternal son and his struggle for independence as an escape route to freedom, in a moving literary biography with many voices.
