The Fairy Tale of the Green Snake and the Beautiful Lily

Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

The Green Snake and the Beautiful Lily is a fairy tale by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe published in 1795. The story revolves around the crossing and bridging of a river, which represents the divide between the outer life of the senses and the ideal aspirations of the human being.
