Summary
It's a little play with all the big subjects in it, wrote Thornton Wilder in a 1937 letter to Gertrude Stein about what has become his most renowned and frequently performed work. Set at the turn of the 20th century, Our Town reveals the ordinary lives of the people in the small town of Grover's Corners, U.S.A. The play's themes of love and marriage, the transitory nature of existence, and the perspective gained when all is inevitably lost to death have helped give the drama universal appeal. Stage Manager, Paul Newman received both Tony and Emmy award nominations for his performance in this Westport Country Playhouse production.

Summary
This overview of the biography and writing of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe from the Famous Authors series depicts Goethe as an avid student of arts and literature but less passionate about his formal studies of law. Love affairs caught him passionately and often triggered heartbreak and literary productivity, particularly his first great success The Sorrows of Young Werther, which established him as a famous novelist and associated him with the Sturm und Drang circle. Besides being an important poet and novelist, Goethe was known for his scientific writings and his connection to the Duke of Weimar.
