The Sorrows of Young Werther –by: Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

The Sorrows of Young Werther (German, Die Leiden des jungen Werther, originally published as Die Leiden des jungen Werthers) is an epistolary and loosely autobiographical novel by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, first published in 1774. The story follows the life and sorrows of Werther after he falls desperately in love with a young woman who is married to another. A climactic scene prominently features Goethe's own German translation of a portion of James Macpherson's Ossian cycle of poems, which had originally been presented as translations of ancient works, and was later found to have been writ...

Galatea –by: Anton Giulio Barrili

Si potrebbe chiamare un romanzo epistolare: è un misto di pagine di diario e di lettere che il protagonista, Rinaldo Morelli, un estimatore del poeta latino Orazio, scrive durante un’estate a Corsenna, un ameno paesello toscano in collina, frequentato da diversi villeggianti dai quali il nostro cerca di tenersi bene alla larga. Ma saranno loro ad andare in cerca di lui e a riempire la pagine dei suoi scritti… soprattutto una certa Galatea.

Liber Amoris –by: William Hazlitt

Liber Amoris is unlike anything Hazlitt wrote and probably like nothing you've come across before. On the face of it it tells the story of Hazlitt's infatuation with his landlords daughter. Hazlitt was middle aged and she young and pretty, a bit of a coquette from the sound of it. It turned out badly for Hazlitt and the book tells the story of this doomed love. Critics have always been divided about the merit of the piece. Even those who see its merit often feel more comfortable with his polished literary works, and perhaps rightly so. This is not a work to make you feel comfortable.

Evelina –by: Fanny Burney

In this epistolary novel, we find a young woman named Evelina, who was raised in rural seclusion until her eighteenth year because of her uncertain parentage. Through a series of harrowing and humorous events that take place in London and an English resort town, Evelina learns how to navigate the complex layers of 18th century society and earn the love of a distinguished and honorable nobleman. This comedy of manners often satirizes the society in which it is set; Evelina is a significant precursor to later works by Jane Austen and Maria Edgeworth, whose novels explore many of the same issu...
