Abstract

Goethe’s deep interest in meteorology, which he showed in the last part of his life, appeared equally in scientific essays and in poetic works, so demonstrating how poetry and science were powerfully related in the poet’s life. This paper analyses “clouds” both as an atmospheric phenomenon and as a poetic image, and through an analytic path - which investigates the scientific works and the poems written as a tribute to Luke Howard - it reveals the symbolic value of this atmospheric element in Goethe’s literary production
