It tells the grisly tale of star-crossed lovers who were betrothed as children. The bride's family has converted from the old magical gods to the newfangled Christianity and no longer wish their daughter to marry a pagan. When the bridegroom, having grown to manhood, arrives to claim his bride, he is welcomed by the mother, who shows him a room where he can sleep and recover from his journey. While he sleeps, his betrothed slips into his room and wakes him. While they consummate their marriage, the bridegroom makes a horrifying and macabre discovery.... Download and start listening now!

About the Author

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.
