Goethe’s ballads

Goethe’s ballads

The examplary class of Goethe’s ballads was prepared by German teacher Goca Đorđević and Serbian teacher Katarina Urošević on 16th December, 2016. They familiarized us with some poems by the great Goethe and characterisitcs of the literary movement sturm und drang. They started with the Prometheus and the parallel with Greek Mythology. Then we watched Schubert’s Erlkӧning and read Goethe’s ballad the Erl-king poem.  Rammstein had the same motife in their song Dalai Lama.  At the end we tried to translate the initial verses of our epic ballad Hasanaginica (which Goethe translated into German, amazed with out epic poetry).
