The Sorrows of Young Werther (1774; revised 1787) by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe is a short, mostly epistolary work of elevated emotion of the German Sturm und Drung period that later evolves into Romanticism.

Honorable and sensitive young Werther literally perishes from a love that can never be, a love for a married young woman, and writes his agonized letter diary to a friend, describing in tragic emotional detail his experiences.

Misfritz.com informiert Die Schönheit des Textes ergibt sich aus drei entscheidenden Komponenten, die knappe Fassung ohne Seitenerzählungen, die elegante Sprachmächtigkeit des Autors, die Originalität der Geschichte, ein Klassiker.
