Literature Lecture: The Sorrows of Young Werther by Goethe

This is the first great tragic novel in all of European literature. Here we meet Goethe’s younger self and the story of unrequited love as it happens to a young artist ill-equipped to deal with it.

Part of a series of literature lectures exploring great writers, their lives and their books, followed by a delicious Launde Lunch. Presented by renowned speaker Dr Jane Mackay.

The lecture lasts for approximately one hour and is followed by further discussion over a two course lunch in the dining room
