I’ve done my best to pull together everything I could find about what happened to poor Werther, and I’m posting it all here. I know you’ll appreciate it. His spirit and his personality come through so clearly, you can’t help loving him and looking up to him or being moved by how things ended.

And you — if you’re out there reading this, and you’re in as much pain as he was, take comfort knowing what he went through, and let this blog be there for you if you messed up or things are bad and you’ve got no one closer to turn to.
