You only find true love once When Werther dances with the beautiful Lotte, it seems as though he is in paradise It is a joy, however, that can only ever be short lived Engaged to another man, she tolerates Werther s adoration and encourages his friendship She can never return his love Broken hearted, he leaves her home in the country, trying to escape his own desire.You only find true love once When Werther dances with the beautiful Lotte, it seems as though he is in paradise It is a joy, however, that can only ever be short lived Engaged to another man, she tolerates Werther s adoration and encourages his friendship She can never return his love Broken hearted, he leaves her home in the country, trying to escape his own desire But when he receives a letter telling him that she is finally married, his passion soon turns to destructive obsession And as his life falls apart, Werther is haunted by one certainty He has lost his reason for living.

About Author:

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe Michael Hulse

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe was a German writer George Eliot called him Germany s greatest man of letters and the last true polymath to walk the earth Goethe s works span the fields of poetry, drama, literature, theology, humanism, and science Goethe s magnum opus, lauded as one of the peaks of world literature, is the two part drama Faust Goethe s other well known literary works include his numerous poems, the Bildungsroman Wilhelm Meister s Apprenticeship and the epistolary novel The Sorrows of Young Werther.Goethe was one of the key figures of German literature and the movement of Weimar Classicism in the late 18th and early 19th centuries this movement coincides with Enlightenment, Sentimentality Empfindsamkeit , Sturm und Drang, and Romanticism The author of the scientific text Theory of Colours, he influenced Darwin with his focus on plant morphology He also long served as the Privy Councilor Geheimrat of the duchy of Weimar.Goethe is the originator of the concept of Weltliteratur world literature , having taken great interest in the literatures of England, France, Italy, classical Greece, Persia, Arabic literature, amongst others His influence on German philosophy is virtually immeasurable, having major impact especially on the generation of Hegel and Schelling, although Goethe himself expressly and decidedly refrained from practicing philosophy in the rarefied sense.Goethe s influence spread across Europe, and for the next century his works were a major source of inspiration in music, drama, poetry and philosophy Goethe is considered by many to be the most important writer in the German language and one of the most important thinkers in Western culture as well Early in his career, however, he wondered whether painting might not be his true vocation late in his life, he expressed the expectation that he would ultimately be remembered above all for his work in optics.

Comments The Sorrows of Young Werther

  • Hans

    This is s dangerous book. For anyone who has suffered from that unrequited love that burns like a fever will be able to relate uncannily well with this book. Unfortunately the ending is such that it inspired many people to use it like a template for their own lives when faced with a similar situation. While finishing up this book I wondered whether Goethe was ever aware or thought about the painful actions his book inspired. This is a fictionalized autobiography of Goethe's own experience of bei [...]

    Thackeray wrote this very glib verse synopsis of the tale:Werther had a love for Charlotte Such as words could never utter;Would you know how first he met her? She was cutting bread and butter.Charlotte was a married lady, And a moral man was Werther,And, for all the wealth of Indies, Would do nothing for to hurt her.So he sighed and pined and ogled, And his passion boiled and bubbled,Till he blew his silly brains out, And no more was by it troubled.Charlotte, having seen his body Borne before h [...]

    I couldn't help but imagine young Werther as a high school, tweeting about all his troubles to the ether. So, without further ado, I present to you: The Tweets of Young Werther.This is the kind of book that high school teachers should be making self-absorbed teenagers read. They can totally relate, both to the intense feelings of emotion and the complete conviction that no one in the world has ever felt the same way before. I couldn't relate that well, because really Werther just needs to man up [...]

    "Α,εσείς οι λογικοί άνθρωποι! Πάθος! Μέθη! Παραφροσύνη! Κάθεστε εκεί ήρεμοι και απαθείς, εσείς οι ενάρετοι, κατακρίνετε τον πότη, απεχθάνεστε τον τρελό, προσπερνάτε σαν τους ιερείς, και, σαν τους Φαρισαίους, ευχαριστείτε το Θεό που δεν σας έκανε όμοιους μ' εκείνους. Έχω μεθύσε [...]

    It’s taken me well over a year to get through the saga of Young Werther’s love for his Lotte even though it’s quite a short little book. I plead mitigating circumstances. I had no thought of reading this novel until I came across a pair of characters called Goethe and Lotte in Christine Brooke-Rose’s Textermination, and checked out their real-life story. The trail led to a fictional version of the same story in Young Werther. I was tempted to try reading Young Werther in his own language [...]

    "I have been intoxicated more than once, my passions have never been far off insanity."Although I have some sympathy for unrequited love, it was hard for me to understand Werther. My feelings toward him went back and forth between sympathy and frustration. At times I admired his love, at other times I found it to be very obsessive. Yes, he was sensitive and romantic, but the woman of his dreams did not lead him on in any way so I did find the way he behaved quite incomprehensible. This was my fi [...]

    I would not be mistaken if I think that many of us would have just eschewed this book by just seeing the first few words of the title. SORROW: the very word instigates a sense of a confused horror in us. Sorrow is one of the emotions which every great men cannot escape in their lives, as Dostoevsky says. Sorrow brings a state of helplessness from which the unfortunate weak ones cannot free themselves. Though the events of this story can be considered as unfortunate for our Werther but it can be [...]

    Most beautiful book I've ever read. Goethe's style and prose is incredible. I'm not sure how well it translates to English, having read it in Dutch and German, but I'm sure there are many competant translators out there. Anyone who's not read this is really, really missing out as it's of an unequalled beauty.

  • J.L. Sutton

    No doubt there were shimmers of brilliance in Johann Wolfgang von Goethe's The Sorrows of Young Werther (1774); however, for such a short book, it took me a long time to complete it. At one level, it's not difficult to relate to Werther and the pain he experiences (he is in love with a woman who is unavailable, i.e. already married). Still, experiencing this pain (and wallowing with Werther in his anguish) is not enough to move the narrative forward.

  • Fernando

    “Lo clásico es salud, lo romántico es enfermedad”, dijo Goethe una vez. Cuando el Romanticismo explotó originariamente en Alemania, lo hizo para romper la delicada armonía que imponía el movimiento del Clasicismo. A partir de ese torbellino que se llamó “Sturm und Drang” (Tormenta e Ímpetu), los hombres ya no fueron los mismos. Y Werther fue el punto de partida del sentimiento romántico. Ser romántico, además de un modelo literario o un estilo pictórico, era una forma de vida. [...]

    It's definately a masterpiece of its age, but I can't count how many times throughout the book I wanted to shake Werther by the arm or better so, slap him it the face. The characters are just unbelievablly stupid. I know that the times were different, but still they should know better. And the fact that the book caused a lot of people to commit suicide doesn't help at all. I can't believe Goethe wasted his talent on such a wortless novel.

  • Edward

    The Sorrows of Young Werther is a beautiful and emotionally accurate depiction of romantic love: its consuming nature, and the devastation it has the potential to inflict. As a novel it is striking (especially for its time) in the way it subverts the traditional format, by connecting an epistolary structure with an overarching narrative from an unnamed "editor". The language is so wonderfully romantic and personal, one really is made to feel as Werther felt throughout his ordeal.I especially lov [...]

    I am proud of my heart alone, it is the sole source of everything, all our strength, happiness and misery. All the knowledge I possess everyone else can acquire, but my heart is all my own.If one doesn’t drown oneself in its indulgent water, sorrow can deepen, can humanize and connect a person to humanity. Werther realizes this idea at different levels of self-indulgence, self-destruction and emotional dissipation. He is dreamy, sensitive, emotional, vulnerable, very romantic, made for love, t [...]

    I read this book in high school. So, I don't remember much of it, except the crying. I loved the story, I could relate to many of his thoughts about unrequited love and its tragic consequences, and feeling like it was the end of the world because I wasn't with that special someone and, well. High school: Maths and lovesickness. I cried quite a bit while reading this book, Bambi's-mother-shooting kind of tears. I probably wouldn't react that way now, I'd just think about how much easier it would [...]

    Sturm and Drang: Self-Destruction, a Tragedy of TemperamentMostly epistolary, this short novel thrusts the reader into the province of Young Werther's psyche by manner of his letters, which are replete with verbal ejaculations, disconnected sentences and fervid flights of fancy, as he moves from summit to summit to deepening valleys.The three main characters are Lotte, Werther and Albert, who is Lotte's older fiance' then husband. The men are nearly diametrically opposed: the latter is older, se [...]

  • Clare

    I picked this up with some trepidation, assuming that it would be full of stolid German angst and that I would give up after a couple of pages. However, it's a perfect psychological portrait! I loved it. Werther isn't an entirely sympathetic character (he has the odd Kevin the Teenager moment) but you are entirely drawn into his world and feel the same responses as him very keenly. It's only upon finishing that you realise how Goethe has managed to completely draw you into the concerns and belie [...]

    It breaks my heart to speak ill of a book written by Goethe; but when one thinks of the countless men and women who have read this book throughout the years, weeping tears of compassion for Werther and men of his elk, it no longer comes as a surprise how misogyny and domestic violence still haunts our women to this day.

    "The things I know, anyone can know - but my heart is mine and mine alone."This has got to be one of my all-time favorite books. Haunting, devastating, soul-stirring, a fist to the stomach. All the tragedy of true love in a Goethe masterpiece. The descriptive majesty of the book is beyond comprehension. A truly amazing book, one that I am happy to have read in my lifetime and one I would suggest to everyone, especially those who have loved someone more than themselves.

    Werther tek kelimeyle rahatsız. Psikolojik olarak,manik- depresif gibi ( iki uçlu duygu durum bozukluğu). Bir dünyanın en mutlu insanı:' Bütün yüreğimle tadını çıkardığım tatlı ilkbahar sabahlarına benzer bu harika neşe bütün ruhumu sarıyor.' Sf. 21'Acaba aldatıcı cinler burda kol mu geziyor, yoksa yüreğimdeki sıcak, göksel hayal gücü mü çevremdeki her şeyi benim için cennete çeviriyor?

    I was surprised how much I enjoyed this, Goethe’s semi-autobiographical tale of a young man’s unrequited love that ends in his suicide. Written in 1774 when Goethe was 24, it was essentially the world’s first best seller. What drew me to it, along with favorable reviews by GR friends, is my curiosity and ignorance of Goethe as an important figure in cultural history. From reading Holmes’ “Age of Wonder” and Wulf’s “The Invention of Nature: Alexander von Humboldt's New World”, I [...]

    Werther was in love with Lotte. She was already engaged. Werther persisted. Lotte married her fiance, Albert. Werther killed himself. THE END.That in essence is what this classic unrequited love story is all about. Originally written in German and first published in 1774, this book is an important novel of the Sturm und Drang period in German literature. Sturm und Drang is that period in Germany in 1760s to 1780s when extreme emotions as expression became popular in reaction to restrictions impo [...]

    Numai o fire melancolică și letargică emoțional poate înțelege profund suferințele lui Werther. Nu știu dacă se mai poate vorbi -la două secole distanță- despre același concept de suferință

    Before I was halfway through this book I had already connected with it on a deep level. I didn’t know what was going to happen in the end but I knew Goethe was telling my story and the opposite of my story at the same time. Ten years later I published my first novel, The Sorrows of Young Mike, which is a parody of this great tale. I can only be grateful to Goethe and encourage everyone to read The Sorrows of Young Werther. Also, if you liked it enough or even because you hated it — you shoul [...]

    After a long time, I closed a book with tearful eyes************Dear Werther,It's been centuries since you've gone but even now we have peasants around who kill their lovers' love or youngsters who kill themselves for the sake of their love. I don't know which killing is worst, the former one kills two lives including one's own and yet suffer while the later one kills one life and numerous dreams of his loved ones. I feel both are equally wretched, to quit before you learn your lesson is never a [...]
