Containing three of Goethe's major prose works, this volume explores a range of themes: unfulfilled love, infidelity, divorce, tragic love, fantasy, and moral rebirth. One of Goethe's best known works, The Sorrows of Young Werther, explores the extremes of the subjective experience through the novel's depiction of a sensitive young man caught up in a love impossible to fulfill. In Elective Affinities, a novel of tragic love, Goethe employs all the requisites of sentimental romance to give a deeply ironic perspective to the idea of love. As the title indicates, Novella examines the possibilities inherent in this genre.

Edgar Wibeau, seventeen years old, has died on Christmas Eve in an unfortunate accident involving electricity. His father, who left the family when Edgard was five, interrogates those close to him, to find out what exactly happened - and who his son really was. Helpfully for the reader, Edgar himself punctuates the father's conversations with his mother, best friend Willi, and Charlie, the woman with whom Edgar was unhappily in love, to give us his version of events from beyond the grave - and a story magically reminiscent of Goethe's The Sorrows of Young Werther and Salinger's The Catcher in the Rye unfolds before our eyes. Originally conceived as a screenplay, Plenzdorf's modern classic was first published in East Germany in 1973. A satire about the cultural and social limits of the GDR, it has long been a set text in German schools, and its critical and popular success remains unabated. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Most of The Sorrows of Young Werther is presented as a collection of letters written by Werther, a young artist of a sensitive and passionate temperament, to his friend Wilhelm. He meets Charlotte, a beautiful young girl who takes care of her siblings after the death of their mother. Werther falls in love with Charlotte despite knowing beforehand that she is engaged to a man named Albert eleven years her senior. Despite the pain it causes him, Werther spends the next few months cultivating a close friendship with them both. Der junge Werther hat seinen Heimatort verlassen, um für seine Mutter eine Erbschaftsangelegenheit zu regeln und so zugleich eine unglückliche Liebesgeschichte hinter sich zu lassen. Auf der Fahrt zu einem Tanzvergnügen mit anderen jungen Leuten macht die Kutschgesellschaft beim Haus des Amtmanns Halt, um dessen Tochter Lotte abzuholen. Werther sieht sie, umringt von ihren acht jüngeren Geschwistern, denen sie ihr Abendbrot von einem Brotlaib abschneidet, und ist tief beeindruckt von dieser Szene, vor allem aber von dem schönen Mädchen, das hier ganz die Mutterrolle übernommen hat.
