Ticket price

Welcome to a Very Short Introduction soapbox. A short talk lasting 15 minutes from an expert in the field. The talk is free and takes place in Blackwell’s Marquee, next to the Sheldonian Theatre.

Professor of German Ritchie Robertson looks at the life and work of Germany’s greatest writer, Goethe. He looks at the key themes in his work of love, nature, religion and tragedy, and explains how much of his art came out of turbulent personal conflicts.  Robertson is Taylor Professor of German at the University of Oxford and a translator of several German authors for Oxford World’s Classics and Penguin Classics.
