Excerpt from the author's introduction:

About three years ago, when I was read- ing or rather working through Goethe's Faust (it took me over six months), with my dear friend and teacher Fraulein A.

I wish it had been so! — No, I had the usual erroneous ideas of a girl of sixteen educated under the modern system. Philosophy to me, meant Fatalism, and Atheism, — a wicked science certainly, and one likely to put its devotees into a most interesting frame of mind! Such a state of affairs could not last, however, as I was taking my literature very much "au serieux."

Here again, my dear Goetze came to my aid in giving me a few clear ideas on this subject, and it was these notes and hints that I took as the fundamental basis of my book when, three months ago, I decided to write it.
