Faust I & II
Faust I & II | Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
One of the great classics of European literature, Faust is Goethe's most complex and profound work. To tell the dramatic and tragic story of one man's pact with the Devil in exchange for knowledge and power, Goethe drew from an immense variety of cultural and historical material, and a wealth of poetic and theatrical traditions. What results is a tour de force illustrating Goethe's own moral and artistic development, and a symbolic, cautionary tale of Western humanity striving restlessly and ruthlessly for progress. Capturing the sense, poetic variety, and tonal range of the German original in present-day English, Stuart Atkins's translation presents the formal and rhythmic dexterity of Faust in all its richness and beauty, without recourse to archaisms or interpretive elaborations. Featuring a new introduction by David Wellbery, this Princeton Classics edition of Faust is the definitive English version of a timeless masterpiece.

Faust is my #2020classics selection for June, and I‘m really enjoying it! Is it wrong for me to think Mephistopheles has the best part in the book? He‘s by far the most interesting and entertaining character! #currentlyreading

#aclassicyouhaventread. Weird, considering I already know the story, have seen it performed, have heard it read aloud, and have owned it for nearly 20 years. Well, maybe next year will be the one! #seasonsreadings2016
