German writer from the Sturm und Drang literary motion and most widely known for his poetic play, Faust. His various other works are the Sorrows of Youthful Werther, Wilhelm Meister’s Apprenticeship, and Hermann and Dorothea. As a kid, he examined many different dialects, including Latin, Greek, French, Italian, British and Hebrew. Through the 1760s, he unhappily examined laws in Leipzig, devoting the majority of his time for it to composing poetry and seeking love. His masterwork, Faust, motivated symphonies, oratorios, and operas by such renowned composers as Wagner, Mahler, Liszt, Schumann, and Berlioz. He previously several children along with his long-time mistress, Christiane Vulpius; the few finally wedded in 1806. Pursuing Vulpius’ loss of life in 1816, Goethe fell deeply in love with Baroness Ulrike von Levetzow (unfortunately, because Levetzow’s mom disapproved of their romantic relationship, the two hardly ever wedded). Goethe’s literary function profoundly inspired the Swiss psychoanalyst, Carl Jung.
