Werther Reloaded

Werther Reloaded

Text by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Illustration by Franziska Walther

Imagine Goethe’s Romantic cult figure as a hip New York art director!
In the 21st century, “The Sorrows of Young Werther” seem to be fast-moving relationships, drugs, and a controlling mother. Driven by lust and a manic desire for consumption, Werther’s life is led astray.

When he meets the amazing Lotte and experiences a wholeness with nature, things start to change.. . Is there a happy ending in sight, this time?
Franziska Walter’s modern version of Goethe’s classic constitutes the first part of this volume; the second part features Goethe’s complete original text (1774) – two books in one.
