Description

Goethe’s Divan for Divination is based on the West-Eastern Divan by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe and takes a selection of Goethe’s romantic and colourful poems and makes them suitable for bibliomantic study.

The connection is that Goethe’s work in the Divan was inspired by the poetry of the Persian poet Hafez, whose work in turn is said to be used to tell the future.

The book is designed as a playful introduction to Geothe’s poetry and includes the original annotations from Alexander Rogers’ 1890 translation.
