What are your thoughts on Goethe?
>>
Archetypical great mind, artist of the highest order and the father of the modern german language.

Faust is great. The Sorrows of Young Werther is amusing, but I can understand why he came to regret writing it.

It’s pronounced wayyyy differently than how it’s spelled.

I feel like it's more a satire of young people in general. Werther himself is basically teenage/young adult angst cranked up to 11. He's obsessed with epic poetry because it's full of emotion and intensity; if the book took place in modern times he'd probably be obsessed with reality television, or something similar. I don't think it's about incels, since he doesn't seem to have any trouble catching the attention of women. I suppose one might consider him an /r9k/-type figure, given his propensity for spazzing and losing his shit.
