Goethe's poem is a ballad in fourteen stanzas (a grouped set of lines within a poem, usually set off from others by a blank line or indentation).

A sorcerer also known as a magician, mage, warlock, witch, wizard/wizardess, enchanter/enchantress, or spell caster, is someone who uses or practices magic derived from supernatural, occult, or arcane sources.
