One of the great classics of European literature,Faustis 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 ofFaustin all its richness and beauty, without recourse to archaisms or interpretive elaborations.
Featuring a new introduction by David Wellbery, this Princeton Classics edition ofFaustis the definitive English version of a timeless masterpiece.
