Last Hurrah – Wednesdays are Wunderbar – US Only Giveaway of The Sorrows of Young Werther

Although German Literature Month is over, Wednesdays are Wunderbar has a last installment. During German Literature Month we were contacted by Music Box Films to make us aware of the German movie Young Goethe in Love which is currently shown in US theaters. The movie is based on Goethe’s early years and his first novel The Sorrows of Young Werther.

You can find the details for the movie here Young Goethe in Love.

To get you in the mood for the film, we are able to give away three copies of Goethe’s famous heartbreaking novel in the Vintage Classics Edition, courtesy of Music Box Films.

A major work of German romanticism in a translation that is acknowledged as the definitive English language version. The Vintage Classics edition also includes NOVELLA, Goethe’s poetic vision of an idyllic pastoral society.

If you would like to win one of the books, please levae a comment on this or Lizzy’s blog. Lizzy and I will collect all the entrants on both of our blogs and then draw the winners.

The giveaway is US only. The winners will be announced on Sunday 11 December – 18.00 European time.

  1. This is wonderful, Caroline! Modern Library Editions are so wonderful! I loved ‘The Sorrows of Young Werther’ when I read it – Goethe’s language is so poetic! I can’t wait to see ‘Young Goethe in love’! All the best to the giveaway participants!

    • That’s too bad because, as Vishy commented, these editions are quite nice but maybe that’s the one you got. You can always reconsider. I will track down a copy too, it will be an antidote to some others I will be watching this moth.

  3. I love the cover of this one. Not what you would expect for Goethe, but, oh, so nice! I don’t think they would put a modern photograph like this one on a German edition. Or would they?

  4. Thanks for the link to the trailer–will check it out. I have this one already on my pile–am looking forward to reading it at some point. I think I will be extending my German authors reading a bit more this month as I have several books by some of the authors I just read–on my reading pile!

    • I’m looking forward to your reviews. Especially the Wallner as I got it too. Too bad you have the Goethe. I think many people have or there would be more interest. On the other hand the majority of my readers isn’t from the US… I prefer international giveaways.

Thanks for commenting, I love to hear your thoughts
