Selected works : The sorrows of young werther, Elective affinities, Italian journey, Faust, Novella, selected poems and letters / J.W. von Goethe ; with an introduction by Nicholas Boyle.
Contains a brief biography of Goethe, a collection of some of his best-known works, and a sampling of his personal correspondence. The Sorrows of Young Werther is a story of self-destructive love that made its author a celebrity overnight at the age of twenty-five. Its exploration of the conflicts between ideas and feelings, between circumstance and desire, continues in his controversial novel probing the institution of marriage, Elective Affinities. The cosmic drama of Faust goes far beyond the realism of the novels in a poetic exploration of good and evil, while Italian Journey, written in the author's old age, recalls his youth in Italy and the effect of Mediterranean culture on a young northerner.
