      Edmund Morris' new biography details Beethoven's life, from the cities of Bonn and Vienna where he lived into his professional friendships and rivalries with Haydn, Mozart, Goethe and Napoleon. Goethe and Beethoven were on friendly terms and saw a good deal of one another during this summer. The acquaintance must have made a powerful impression on Beethoven. Goethe, the senior by many years, whose transcendent intellect had won him a world-wide reputation, was no doubt the cynosure of all eyes. Töplitz was full of notabilities.

    The moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. Whatever you think you can do, or believe you can do, begin it. Action has magic, power and grace. A man sees in the world what he carries in his heart. I have come to the frightening conclusion that I am the decisive element. It is my personal approach that creates the climate. Beethoven's music, and productions which omit the music still seem to evoke it, even in its absence, through discussions in the program notes. Any prospective staging of Egmont must confront Beethoven, even if the decision is not to do the music.1 Equally striking is the frequent mention of Beethoven in literary criticism of Goethe's Egmont.
