This ed. of this translation originally published: 1994.
In 'Elective Affinities', Goethe conducts an experiment with the lives of people who are living badly. Charlotte and Eduard invite Ottilie and the Captain into their lives. Against good sense, morality, and conscious volition, all four are drawn into relationships as inexorably as if they were substances in a chemical equation.
Translated from the German.
