The Sorrows of Young Werther

GOETHE, The Sorrows of Young Werther

By Cristina Gutiérrez Aguilera, 2° Bachillerato EFL

The story is about a love triangle. The main character, Werther, told his history by means of letters which are destined to his best friend, Albert. Werther lives a horrible life since he met Lotte at a dance where he fell in love at first sight. The problem was that Lotte was engaged to Albert. He couldn’t put up with that situation and... (you must read it to find out).

I have enjoyed this book because it has been very easy to identify with feelings that any person may have. Although Lotte is a very cruel and bad person (because she knew perfectly that Werther was in love with her and yet she fed his impossible love), this story couldn’t have been written with success without her, for this reason I believe that the book should be called Charlotte.
