The Sorrows of a Modern Day Werther -- New Novel Revisits Classic Novella by German Philosopher Goethe
NORTH YORK, Ontario, May 1, 2003 (PRIMEZONE) -- In 1774, Goethe published a revolutionary novella about a sulking young romantic named Werther that lit the literary world on fire. Its stance on love and its affects was revolutionary for its time, but also the observations on art, beauty, nature and religion by Goethe ran over with depth and revelation, even to this day, making the book a classic. Now, Frank Kutas reinvents the spirit of Goethe and the disposition of Werther in his new novel, The Sorrows of a Modern Day Werther (now available through 1stBooks Library).
