By Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
You just locate real love once.
When Werther dances with the attractive Lotte, it kind of feels as if he's in paradise. it's a pleasure, despite the fact that, that could purely ever be short-lived. Engaged to a different guy, she tolerates Werther's adoration and encourages his friendship. she will by no means go back his love.
Broken-hearted, he leaves her domestic within the kingdom, attempting to break out his personal hope. but if he gets a letter telling him that she is eventually married, his ardour quickly turns to damaging obsession.
And as his existence falls aside, Werther is haunted by means of one walk in the park: He has misplaced his cause of living.
