Exercise: Goethe, Faust

  IV.1 Zueignung (Dedication)

This dedication is a bit uncommon, because it describes the poet's state of mind when he re-starts writing his work. Normally the dedication is directed to the reader when the piece is finished. This dedication describes the feelings of poet as he starts to work again. He remembers his youth, his friends, which are spread around the world, the ideas and vision he had then and above all he remembers his desire to put his thoughts into the world.
