He succeeded in having his plays put on the stage, where they met with much success. Verdi's opera Attila is based on Werner's drama of the same name. Werner's Der 24. Februar, thus titled because his mother and an intimate friend died on that day, introduced the era of the so-called “tragedies of fate.” Several of his dramatic poems were designed to evangelize freemasonry. Among his titles were:
- Vermischte Gedichte, 1789
- Die Söhne des Thals, 1803-1804, in two parts
- Die Templer auf Cypern, 1803
- Die Kreuzesbrüder, 1804
- Das Kreuz an der Ostsee, 1806
- Die Brautnacht, 1806
- Martin Luther oder die Weihe der Kraft, 1806
- Der vierundzwanzigste Februar, 1808 (translated into French by Jules Lacroix, Paris, 1849)
- Attila, König der Hunnen, romantische Tragödie, 1809
- Wanda, 1810
- Die Weihe der Unkraft, 1813, a recantation of his earlier work Martin Luther
- Kunigunde die Heilige, 1815
- Geistliche Übungen für drei Tage, 1818
- Die Mutter der Makkabäer, 1820

Famous quotes containing the word works:
“I meet him at every turn. He is more alive than ever he was. He has earned immortality. He is not confined to North Elba nor to Kansas. He is no longer working in secret. He works in public, and in the clearest light that shines on this land.”

For scholars and for poets after us,
Thoughts long knitted into a single thought,
A dance-like glory that those walls begot.”
