Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe (1749-1832) was a novelist, poet, playwright, philosopher, and scientist. He wrote The Sorrows of Young Werther when he was just twenty-four. "Faust," his most enduring work, took fifty-seven years to write and was published in its entirety only after Goethe's death at eighty-three.
