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. Acclaimed translation by Bayard Taylor.
