Get Tibertanz - Italienische Reise nach Goethes Worten: Et in PDF

By Eleonore Born

Tibertanz: Erzählungen über ein ‚irdisches Paradies‘ zogen Goethe 1786 ins ferne Italien und auf seinen Spuren nun auch die Autorin nebst Ehemann. Das jahrtausendelange Einwirken des Menschen auf die durchreisten Landschaften wird nachgezeichnet und mit aktuellen Alltagsbildern verknüpft. Assoziationen ergänzen die Szenerien, die sich der Autorin und ihrem touristischen Auge eröffnen. Ihre Textkomposition führt über die Suche nach dem Sinn der Kunst zurück zum Sinn für die Natur.

eLeoNore Born (*1954) bezeichnet sich als „Berufsreisende“. Sie ist Geografin und Journalistin und in diesen Berufsfeldern inzwischen im Ruhestand. Das motiviert sie noch mehr, die Welt reisend zu beschreiben. Dazu sucht sie die Anregungen großer Geister. Für die Idee „Tibertanz“ stand Johann Wolfgang Goethe Pate.
