    Die ich rief, die Geister This was one of the first poems I read with my children in their toddler years, and we still cherish it, often quoting whole passages from it when domestic disasters strike Now turning into teenagers, they all of a sudden see the hidden political message underneath the funny drama of the sorcerer s apprentice who tries to copy the master while he is gone The apprentice creates a stupid army of living broomsticks who carry water until he must fear for his life W Die ich rief, die Geister This was one of the first poems I read with my children in their toddler years, and we still cherish it, often quoting whole passages from it when domestic disasters strike Now turning into teenagers, they all of a sudden see the hidden political message underneath the funny drama of the sorcerer s apprentice who tries to copy the master while he is gone The apprentice creates a stupid army of living broomsticks who carry water until he must fear for his life Whenever he tries to destroy them, they split in half and double up Not being properly trained for the sorcerer s job, the apprentice has forgotten the spell to stop the disaster Stop now, hear me Ample measureOf your treasureWe have gotten Ah, I see it, dear me, dear me.Master s word I have forgotten Ah, the word with which the masterMakes the broom a broom onceAh, he runs and fetches faster Be a broomstick as before Ever new the torrentsThat by him are fed,Ah, a hundred currentsPour upon my head The end of the story is hilarious for children, and quite a hopelessly utopian scenario for grown ups who are forever watching apprentices waving wands in the world THE MASTER steps in and ends the curse, reprimanding the naughty boy for his careless insolence A classic poem, and a wonderful introduction to the world of Goethe for children, it contains so manylayers to explore As my oldest son reads Goethe poetry in school at the moment, we dusted off our illustrated version of it and enjoyed the rhythm of the language that we remember reading long ago in toddler times Walle, walle , my younger children used to chime in, laughing at the apprentice s frustration with the broom Stock, der du gewesen,Steh doch wieder still All of us chimed in for the dramatic end Ach, da kommt der Meister Herr, die Not ist gro Die ich rief, die Geisterwerd ich nun nicht los In die Ecke,Besen, Besen Seids gewesen.Denn als Geisterruft euch nur zu diesem Zwecke,erst hervor der alte Meister Goethe had a brilliant feeling for the moments when humans step from curiosity and inventiveness to hubris and incompetent failure His Faust First Part is the perfect grown up example of the life ennui that triggers reckless behaviour, and leads to playing with dangerous weapons that can only be controlled by experienced, well educated masters without the need to shine and brag Wouldn t it be nice, my son mused, if we could call upon old master Goethe to put the out of control brooms where they belong again, and to send the apprentice back to school, with a well deserved detention Besen, Besen Seids gewesen.Denn als Geisterruft euch nur zu diesem Zwecke,erst hervor der alte Meister

    In der Schule Pflichtprogramm war es dennoch ein Gedicht, das ich sehr gerne lernte, auch wenn seine zahlreichen Strophen mich w hrend des Vortrags vor der Klasse stolpern lie en, in dem ich einfach eine verga.Ich glaube, was mich als Kind faszinierte, war die enorme Bewegung und der versteckte Humor in der Handlung Um so mehr freue ich mich, dass es inzwischen auch als Kinderbuch vorliegt, ebenso wie der Osterspaziergang F r mich ist es das effektivste Einstiegswerk, um einen jungen Menschen In der Schule Pflichtprogramm war es dennoch ein Gedicht, das ich sehr gerne lernte, auch wenn seine zahlreichen Strophen mich w hrend des Vortrags vor der Klasse stolpern lie en, in dem ich einfach eine verga.Ich glaube, was mich als Kind faszinierte, war die enorme Bewegung und der versteckte Humor in der Handlung Um so mehr freue ich mich, dass es inzwischen auch als Kinderbuch vorliegt, ebenso wie der Osterspaziergang F r mich ist es das effektivste Einstiegswerk, um einen jungen Menschen den doch so oft sehr schw lstig Verse schmiedenden Herrn von Goethe n her zu bringen.Allein die Illustrationen sind nicht ganz nach meinem Geschmack

    This poem is a classic and has inspired many a pop culture scenes and references I first read the poem in primary school and learnt it off by heart, but can recite only a few bits now My book club had magic as a theme and I dug out this poem, which was lovely to read again.

    2 starsI don t really have any strong feelings towards this book it was fine for a poem, but it was a bit difficult to follow at least in the translation I used.

    O, du Ausgeburt der H lle Soll das ganze Haus ersaufen What an interesting language Old fashioned German verses describing the misshapes of the Sorcerer s Apprentice How the broom went from getting water to flooding the whole place Haha I loved this segment from Disney s Fantasia with Mickey Mouse as the Sorcerer s Apprentice.Very funny.

    almost a three star because i don t like the illustrations but they work, because they are so unusual that children are hooked and get to know goethe s famous ballad.
