Goethe
In 1774, the future giant of German literature published his breakthrough novel, The Sorrows of Young Werther, a sentimental, melodramatic yarn about a young man tormented by unrequited love who ultimately shoots himself in the head. The story is largely autobiographical, minus the shooting in the head part, and is based on Goethe’s own romance with a woman who was engaged to an older man. Published when the author was just 25, Werther became an instant smash, influencing fashion and attitudes all over Europe. The book also inspired some of the earliest known examples of copycat suicides, as lovelorn young men around Germany reportedly took their own lives in the same manner as Werther. The term “Werther effect” is still used today to describe suicides inspired by the media.
