Werther as the Prototypical Romantic in Sorrows of Young Werther

- Werther as the Prototypical Romantic in Sorrows of Young Werther In Goethe's Sorrows of Young Werther, the protagonist's characteristics and ideas define him as the prototypical romantic personality.  The Romantic Movement emphasizes emotion over reason, an idea that Werther emulates throughout his life.  Werther loves pastoral settings; in nature, he feels most in touch with his emotions.  He rejects rationality and complexity with the sentiment that life is an adventure to be guided by intuition.  Werther's longing for his love, Lotte, is a paradigm of the Romantic concept of sehnsucht, one's constant yearning for something that they will never possess or know.  Werther find...   [tags: Sorrows Young Werther Essays]

The Sorrows of Young Werther

These aesthetic judgments are concerned with experiencing an object as designed for the emotion they can invoke, not for any particular intention....   [tags: Goethe]

Sorrows Of Young Werther

- WERTHER AND SELF DECEPTION Romanticism was deeply interested in creating art and literature of suffering, pain and self-pity. With poets pining for a love long gone and dead and authors falling for unavailable people, it appears that romantics in literature were primarily concerned with self-injury and delusion.

Werther's story may appear simple and even trite to some- a young man falls in love with a woman he can never be with and deludes himself into believing that she loves him too only to be severely disappointed in the end....   [tags: Johann Wolfgang von Goethe]
