Disambiguation Notice

Please be careful when combining Goethe's autobiographical works - the various editions of "From My Life: Poetry and Truth" (Aus Meinem Leben: Dichtung und Wahrheit) contain differing portions of the complete work. Vol. 5 in the Princeton Edition containing Part 4 is a DIFFERENT work from vol. 4 containing Parts 1-3, the latter being similar to most other editions which are allegedly complete but contain only those first three Parts.
