From a spring 2012trip to Weimar: at the monument to Goethe’s East West Divan. Mark gives the Leitmotiv of this poem the thumbs up. As publisher Barbara Schwepke, who took the photograph, notes: “It was his Leitmotiv as well.”
The English translation: “Those who know themselves and others will recognize here, too, that the Orient and the Occident can no longer be separated.”
