Product Description

The Sorrows of Young Werther/Die Leiden des jungen Werther: A Dual-Language Book - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

An overnight sensation upon its 1774 publication, The Sorrows of Young Werther became one of the first European best-sellers and secured its young author both fortune and fame. Loosely based on Goethe's personal experiences, the novel is written mostly in the form of letters in which Werther recounts his unrequited love for a married woman. Its Sturm und Drang style, portraying the rebellion of youthful genius against conventional standards, makes it a perennial favorite with readers of every era. Includes the original German with English translation on the facing pages.
