What’s Old Is New Again

I’m happy to announce that the Werther translation/adaptation I discussed so fervently two years ago and then put on hold is…totally happening now!

To recap: Werther is an epistolary novel: it’s almost entirely made up of dated letters Werther sends to his best friend from home. I’m going to post each letter online on the dates Werther mailed them.

And — this is the really exciting part — I’ve set up an email list so that you can receive these letters as personalized emails in your own inbox. It’s going to be your friend Werther telling you his all-too-familiar story of obsessing over unavailable women and struggling to find a fulfilling job. I think it’s going to be a uniquely gripping experience.

I hope you’ll come with me on this one. Bookmark the blog or sign up for the emails and relive the joys and tragedy of What Werther Went Through!
