My fellow dear Goethe this time caught me with another book of his, The Sorrows of Young Werther.
This is the book responsible for Goethe’s fame but later he started to dislike being forever associated with this one. Wanna hear the short summary of it? It’s something that we’ve never heard before.
- Werther is a young rich man with raging hormones.
- He falls in love with a pretty lady.
- SHE IS MARRIED TO ANOTHER GUY HAHA.
- Werther kills himself.
I was kidding when I said it’s something we’ve never heard before (in case you didn’t get it haha I’m so funny). Yes this is your typical story of unrequited love. A story of obsession.
There isn’t much to say about it. I liked it but I think Goethe’s poetry is better.
