The Sorrows of Young Werther (Dover Thrift Editions) by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
The Sorrows of Young Werther (Dover Thrift Editions)

5phiv, February 2, 2008

This is a perennial work which, captures eloquently the seemingly ineffable despair experienced by unrequited love. Goethe, often called a "German Shakespeare" captures this agony best. Definitely one of my favorite works of literature.
