Eric Klaus, assistant professor of German, investigated the commonalities between Goethe's and Gorky's notions of identity and self in an article was published in the latest edition of “German-Slavica,” a journal focusing on Germanic and Slavic comparative and interdisciplinary studies. The article, “The Formula of Self-Formation: Bildung and vospitannie in Goethe's 'Wilhelm Meisters Lehrjahre' and Gorky's 'Mother,'” argues that despite various differences between these two important figures, both present similar paths of development and formation in their works.
