    The Sorrows of Young Werther was Goethe's first major success, turning him from an unknown into a celebrated author practically overnight. Napoleon Bonaparte considered it one of the great works of European literature. He thought so highly of it that he wrote a soliloquy in Goethe's style in his youth and carried Werther with him on his campaigning to Egypt.

    I dolori del giovane Werther è un romanzo epistolare di Johann Wolfgang Goethe pubblicato nel 1774. Il Werther appartiene all'età giovanile di Goethe ed è considerato opera simbolo del movimento dello Sturm und Drang, anticipando molti temi che saranno propri del romanticismo tedesco.Beethoven ammirava questo libro di Goethe, che considerava "un artista che cammina dinanzi a tutta l'umanità". La cornice musicale è dunque l’Ouverture dell’Egmont, che Beethoven scrisse appunto ispirandosi al dramma di Goethe.
