The Sorrows of the Young Werther
The Sorrows of Young Werther published in 1774 was the first autobiographical novel of a twenty-five-year-old author. Werther is a compassionate, brilliant, affectionate, helpful, humble young man governed by his principles, which he respects as the basis of life. He is an artist but associate with the upward-conation middle class. His novel established a sensation all over Europe and had sustained its outstanding power for readers in a universe far from where it was drafted. The foundation of this story's unsettling power is puzzling. It lays bare struggle and queries that can be only contemplated, not resolved. Werther seems to communicate something discerning in human nature. Commentators have suggested conflicting translations of the novel and Werther, but something in both novel and character assumes beyond interpretation.
In the previous letters, it is clear that some descriptions of what Werther saw and how he felt were unconnected with the consequent plot. For instance, in the letter of May tenth, he wrote. “A wonderful calmness fills my entire being, like the pleasing mornings that I adore with life in this landscape, appears like it has been created for souls like mine. I am so delighted, dear loved once, so completely submerged in the sensation of upright being, that my art agonize. When the dew rises around me from the splendid valley, and the sun at high noon halt on the roof of my combat dark forest. Only single bars of sunlight gets into the inner shrine, and I am lying in the long grass by the collapsing rill, discovering the variation of thousands of distinct grasses near to the ground. When I surface nearer to my heart, the brimming little universe among the grass shank. The frequent shapes of all the small worms and insects, and sense the existence of the Almighty, who comforts us, floating in eternal rapture.”
