The Fairy Tale of the Green Snake and the Beautiful Lily

by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe


A true fairy story is a work of art. At Michaelmas, in 1795, there appeared a series of stories of which the concluding one was a Fairy Tale, The Green Snake and the Beautiful Lily. This tale tells of magical transformation, yet one which, when the time is ripe, can be experienced by every human being. The author of these stories was Johann Wolfgang von Goethe and the creation of this Fairy Tale was to have far reaching consequences.

This book arises out of the inspiration of David Newbatt to bring together the original English translation by Thomas Carlyle with a series of pictures, to help reveal the seven-fold process which unfolds within Goethe's Fairy Tale, this process being a path of inner development and personal transformation.

Together with the translation by Thomas Carlyle and the series of seven pictures by David Newbatt, the book includes an introduction by Tom Raines.
