A study of the concept of solipsism, which was embraced in the German Romantic movement by comparing and contrast how it is handled in Johan Wolfgang Von Goethe's classic novel The Sorrows of Young Werther and Anton Chekhov's collection of stories commonly called the "Little Trilogy." This project examines the semantics and poetics which contribute to Chekhov's and Goethe's treatments of the subject.
