Review Duncan leads the reader carefully and lucidly through this critical pandemonium. . . . No one approaching Werther critically can afford to ignore this fascinating survey of its critical history. MLR Duncan succeeds not only in demonstrating how various critical approaches to literature in general and to Goethe's novel in specific have influenced readings of the text, but also how art and its reception and interpretation enter a reciprocal relationship with culture. GERMAN STUDIES REVIEW This judicious overview of the vast literary scholarship since the novel's comet-like appearance ... will be a welcome point of orientation for researchers and teachers.... COLLOQUIA GERMANICA The author concentrates on central issues in the interpretation of fictional literature so that the critical reception of Goethe's novel in effect becomes a model for the treatment of literary texts in general. GOETHE JAHRBUCH
