Fragments of a Great Confession The second of five programmes celebrating the 250th anniversary of the birth of Goethe.
2: Werther and the Suicide Cult
Goethe described his literary output as "fragments of a great confession", and perhaps nothing was so directly linked to events in his own life as his early novel The
Sorrows of Young Werther. This tale of adulterous love and death was inspired by Goethe's own unrequited passion for a young married woman, and by the dramatic suicide of an acquaintance. Historian
Philippa Gregory explores the potent influence of Werther on a whole generation of young European Romantics.
