Notes

General Note
Encyclopaedia Britannica Great books of the western world series, c1952.
Description
Goethe's most complex and profound work, Faust was the effort of the great poet's entire lifetime. Written over 60 years, it can be read as a document of Goethe's moral and artistic development.
Description
Hailed as Germany's greatest contribution to world literature, Goethe's Faust drew upon a folktale and Marlowe's Dr. Faustus for inspiration. But in this epic version, Faust sells his soul not for magic powers but for a heightened sense of existence. Part One covers his pact with Mephistopheles and seduction of an innocent girl; Part Two relates his courtship of Helen of Troy and his salvation.
