In addition to PROPYLÄEN, the Goethe- und Schiller-Archiv is involved in the following projects:
With the exception of the song collection “Des Knaben Wunderhorn” (“The Boy’s Magic Horn”), which Arnim produced together with Brentano, this edition includes everything that Arnim wrote: his complete works, writings, pocket books and published journals and texts about literary-political activities.
Established in 1943, the “Schiller National Edition” is the oldest, historic-critical edition of Schiller’s complete works which is still being updated and expanded at the Goethe- und Schiller Archive today. The edition includes all correspondence and discussions, letters to Schiller and documents connected to Schiller’s life. The Klassik Stiftung Weimar finances an editorial staff member who is specifically responsible for managing the project.
The central focus of this project is the publication of Goethe’s correspondence with Friedrich Wilhelm Riemer (1774–1845), one of his closest colleagues and confidants. The body of correspondence, which dates back to 1803 and continued until Goethe’s death, comprises some 500 letters. This project will provide access to these letters in a print and online edition for the first time.
This project is producing an historic-critical edition of Goethe’s “Faust” which combines a modern facsimile edition with an innovative genetic apparatus in an electronic medium.
The repertory contains information on manuscripts and printed documents of the complete collection of known letters written by Goethe. This project is conducting preliminary work for the new, complete, historic-critical edition of Goethe’s letters. Some 15,700 pieces of data are currently stored on the database.
