– Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe (August 28, 1749 – March 22, 1832)
– Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe’s The Sorrows of Young Werther
For more than two centuries the very title of this book has evoked the sensitivity of youth, the suffering of the artist, the idea of a hero too full of love to live. When it was first published in Germany, in 1774, The Sorrows of Young Werther created a sensation. Banned and condemned but embraced, especially by the young, it has continued to captivate.
