Goethe's review of Des Knaben Wunderhorn began to articulate both his infatuation and his frustration with the Romantic endeavor. The pattern is repeated, when Goethe received the first semischolarly edition of the Nibelungenlied and exchanged letters with the editor, the young lawyer turned philologist Friedrich Heinrich von der Hagen. Goethe upended the positions taken in the preface to that edition, when shortly thereafter he developed a plan for an educational collection of poetry Volksbuch.

Secondary Studies, 1900–1999
From the Old German world, the Nibelungenlied repeatedly captured Goethe's attention. While he studied it only briefly, he returned to it in several key passages on world literature, acknowledging the unwieldy, undeniable appeal of the epos, but also insisting that works with such particularities could hardly speak to other nations and thus be unfit for the dynamic, transnational, and forward-looking exchanges his concept of world literature sought to inspire.

The Cleansing of our Base. Page 5 It is most certain, that the external fire is a great friend to us, and his nature is such, that he can endure no impurity in anything, therefore at the day of Judgment, the Elemental fire shall purify, cleanse, and burn up all the impure earth that we tread on, and purge it from all dross and filth.
So likewise must it do in our work. Wherefore after the separation of our Water, Air and Fire out of our Earth? Take out the black feces which remain in the bottom of our Vessel, called our Dragon, and grind it into small powder, and calcine it in two crucibles luted together, in a potters furnace, or in a glass, or wind furnace, until it look whitish or something grey, which Calx keep by itself, for it is called the Base and Foundation of our Work, and it is now called MARS, and our White Fixed Earth.
The Purification of our Faint Waters. But that thou mayest loose no time nor be idle, while the Earth is calcining, distil the Water that was first drawn out of the Compound, seven times, until it be clear as Crystal, but do it by itself alone, not intermixing any other thing therewith, and then hast thou our pure river of Water of Life, which hath power and virtue to revive the dead body from whence it sprung, and to make it white and Shining like a pure Alabaster.
As for our other Arie and fiery Waters, they are so fixed and permanent, that no fire will again elevate their substances, but they would stand in the fire, until Doomsday without any wasting or exhalation.

The Red Work. When thou hast once obtained our White Stone in manner and form aforesaid, divide it into two equal parts, and to the one of them put the 4th.
Page 7 the other part you may still multiply with sublimate, or Quicksilver purified with Salt and Vinegar, unto your lifes end, and so substract and multiply at your pleasure. But for the Red, take the other half of your reserved White Stone, and pulverize it, and put it into a glass, and pour thereon a little of our fiery water, or Golden Tincture, and congeal them together upon a slender fire lest your glass break, by force of the venom and insuperable power of our Red and fiery Mercury, do so once or twice, until it be perfectly fixed, then take it out make it into red powder, and incinerate it in a crucible with his said red Oil, or fiery Water, until it flow like Wax, as you did the White Medicine, then have you OUR DARK RED STONE somewhat like the powder of an Hoematite, which is able to do miracles upon earth, but we intend not to reveal them at this time, leaving it to be experienced by those, whom Almighty God shall think worthy to teach, by this our little and brief, but pithie and true book, unto whom we perpetually owe all thanks and praise, for endowing us with the Knowledge thereof.
The White Rogue, or powder, whereof we spake before, and willed thee carefully to reserve it, which is perfect Sulphur of Nature, and foliated Earth, which needs neither imbibing, nor digesting unto the white. Take it therefore, and being ground fine and small, imbibe it with a fourth part of our before said Air, or Virgins Milk. But observe by the Way, that thou must have great store of our Water, Air and Fire, and those extracted out of five or six several Compounds, or Chaos, so that after you have driven one Chaos out of the Oven, you must presently set in a new one, and so successively one after another, and then separate their elements, for else you will want waters and oils for imbibition, inceration, and multiplication, and -if thy work be discontinued for want of such materials, all is spoiled and will come to.
Page 8 nothing, for if thou once begin, thou must proceed without stay or interruption unto the full end. But to the matter, having imbibed the said Ryme, congeal the whole on a soft fire, until it be drunk up, then imbibe and congeal it twice more until it be fixed, after that powder it, and incerate it, with some of our Air by drops, as thou didst thy white medicine before, until it flow like wax upon a red hot iron, and fly not away, thus shall thou have the White Stone perfectly made in half the time, and with half the labour which is a precious Jewel, and a great Secret.
