Description
 

Containing three of Goethes major prose works, this volume explores a range of themes: unfulfilled love, infidelity, divorce, tragic love, fantasy, and moral rebirth. One of Goethes best known works,The Sorrows of Young Werther,explores the extremes of the subjective experience through the novels depiction of a sensitive young man caught up in a love impossible to fulfill. InElective 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,Novellaexamines the possibilities inherent in this genre.
