Johann Wolfgang Goethe
«En definitiva, ?Las penas del joven Werther? es una novela clásica muy recomendable para los no iniciados en Goethe, que emociona y que además incita a seguir leyendo el resto de la obra de este genio de la literatura, por su maestría y atemporalidad» Mar LópezPublicada en 1774, revisada en 1787, Las penas del joven Werther es quizá una de las obras más influyentes de la literatura universal. El «efecto Werther» no sólo creó tendencias literarias y modas en el vestir, sino también una peculiar oleada de suicidios. Fue libro de cabecera de Napoleón? y también del monstruo de Frankenstein. Todos ?clásicos y románticos? quisieron apropiarse de él: fue icono del sentimentalismo y héroe de la exaltación revolucionaria; también fue, como dijo Thomas Mann, «el horror y el espanto de los moralistas». Al final de su vida, Goethe lamentaba que la mayoría de los jóvenes que peregrinaban a Weimar para visitarlo sólo conocieran esa obra suya. Hoy leer las desventuras de este joven artista burgués que, a raíz de un amor prohibido, descubre su insospechada comunidad con los locos, los humildes, los desdichados y hasta los asesinos no anula ni el distanciamiento ni la identificación. Werther sigue preguntándonos si pactar es una necesidad o una rendición. Sigue apuntando a nuestro yo, y lo que significa conservarlo. Sigue hablando de nosotros mismos.

Este volumen incluye las clásicas ilustraciones de Daniel Nikolaus Chodowiecki para las primeras ediciones del libro.
