The book presents a series of interpretive readings of the Romische Elegien, Sonette, Chinesisch-deutsche Jarhes- und Tageszeiten, several trilogies, and the shorter cycles of 1821, taking into account the variety of literary devices Goethe employs to link poems together into a cycle. The author examines Goethe's role in the history of the lyric cycle and, in stressing structural design, urges a reevaluation of the cycle's emergence as a standard poetic device.

Although cyclical analyses normally cannot avoid some measure of subjectivity, Lee's are practically never marred by the over-exegesis that often accompanies such studies. Imaginative interpretation is balanced by scrupulous but never burdensome use of relevant philological and other evidence." - The German Quarterly
