Description
Goethe's Faust is one of the pillars of Western literature. This classic drama, using the superb new translation by John R. Williams, presents the story of the scholar Faust, tempted into a contract with the Devil in return for a life of sensuality and power. Enjoyment rules until Faust's emotions are stirred by a meeting with Gretchen, and the tragic outcome brings Part 1 to an end. Part 2, written much later in Goethe's life, places his eponymous hero in a variety of unexpected circumstances, causing Faust to reflect on humanity and its attitudes to life and death.
