A revised edition followed in 1787. It was one of the most important novels in the Sturm und Drang period in German literature and influenced the later Romantic movement. Goethe, aged 24 at the time, finished Werther in five-and-a-half weeks of intensive writing in January-March 1774. Sadly the book led to some copycat suicides, first-ever recorded.
