Haracter analysis of Werther in Johann Wolfgang von Goethes The Sorrows of Young Werther.
The paper needs to be a character analysis of the Werther character in Goethes The Sorrows of Young Werther. The thesis I had constructed states that Werther depression and consequential suicide have little to do with the world around him, but instead are a result of being mentally ill. Things that might be included are Werthers subjective view of the world and the hint of a damaged relationship with his mother. The sources should be academic journal articles, critical reviews, or books. They should consist of different theories surrounding Werther and used either to support the argument or as a juxtopostion to the argument. The focus, however, should be on textual evidence. It should be traditional MLA style with a works cited page included.
