He was so content and dead set on doing it that he was even convinced that it was the right thing to do, for him, for Albert, and of course, for his Lotte.


Thanks for telling us about the problem. As Werther begins to deteriorate mentally, the style of writing alters from one of verbosity and grandeur to bluntness and factual.
