It shows how, under the pressure of emergent exclusive individuality, traditional ideas and formulations are reinterpreted and pressed into service to perform new functions. Three works from Goethes early period - the Pastorbrief, G tz and Clavigo - are subjected to thorough analysis and a new reading of them is proposed. It becomes apparent that previous interpretations have themselves adopted the coordinates of Enlightenment and Empfindsamkeit, thus missing the opportunity for socio-historically motivated reinterpretations and denying these works much of their specifically historical thrust.
