"Frequent word usage errors made it a tough listen"
Aus dem Harenberg Literaturlexikon (2003) zu diesem Text: "Die Differenz zwischen Wilhelm Meisters Lehrjahre und den Wanderjahren markiert den Übergang vom herausgehobenen Individuum ins Zeitalter der Masse und der Maschine. Goethe vermochte hier die Diagnose der Zeit zu stellen und Therapeutica für die Zukunft zu nennen. Die Wanderjahre nehmen das Ideal der autonomen Persönlichkeit zurück und geben Anweisungen zum tätigen Dasein in der republikanischen Gemeinschaft. Die Ausbildung des Menschen zum sozialen Wesen ist Thema des komplizierten Romans". (S. 1085) Kompliziert ist der Roman fürwahr; nichts zum Hören "nebenbei". Aber einer der wichtigsten Texte der Weltliteratur.
