Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Baron Eduard and his second wife Charlotte enjoy a quiet, humdrum existence in their opulent castle. When he invites his friend the captain and she invites her niece Ottilie to stay with them, both hosts lives turn inside out when they begin to feel attracted to their guests. Juxtaposing social interactions with scientific principles, this unique novel illustrates the typically Romantic concern of the individual coming to terms with society.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749–1832) is widely considered the founder of modern German literature. His best-known literary works include Faust and The Sorrows of Young Werther. H.M. Waidson has previously translated Goethe as well as other German and Swiss authors.
