The article analyzes Goethe’s early drama “Götz von Berlichingen” as an examination of and reflection on the relationship between genre, gender and genius. While the reception of the text (in part to this day) ascribes the blatant violations of the laws of genre to the male genius, it is argued here that Goethe’s text both cites and undermines the gender opposition of masculinity and femininity by negotiating it as a relationship of integrity and supplement. In the juxtaposition and the relationship of desire between von Götz and Weislingen, the genius becomes legible as a male-female hybrid figure that transcends gender boundaries as well as the laws of the genre.
