From the Back Cover:

"The world at once took possession of The Sorrows of Young Werther and it took possession of the world....It seemed as though the public in all countries, secretly and without their own knowledge, had been awaiting this very book by an unknown young man from a German Imperial city; that this book with revolutionary, liberating power emancipated the fettered yearnings of the civilized world. Napoleon, the iron man of destiny, had the French translation in his knapsack through Egyptian campaign. He claimed to have read it seven times."


--Thomas Mann

Translated by Elizabeth Mayer and Louise Brogan
Poems translated by W. H. Auden

From the Inside Flap:

A major work of German romanticism in a translation that is acknowledged as the definitive English language version. The Vintage Classics edition also includes NOVELLA, Goethe's poetic vision of an idyllic pastoral society.
