Clearly the best literature originally written in German, and one of the best pieces of literature in any language. Listening to an audiobook while driving is far from the best way to absorb a complex story, but at the very least, I'm now inspired to read the original in German. ( )

[Faust], Johann von Goethe's influential version of the Faust legend, is a play in verse. Oh how I wish this had been prose. Rhyme and rhythm, I regret to say, didn't enhance the tale for me. Rather it gave me considerable difficulty in untangling the meaning of passages. Sentence structure is frequently convoluted. I caught my brain reading passages in nonsensical sing-song, disregarding punctuation and ultimately losing meaning.

In this telling, Faust is a medieval scholar and alchemist who's chaffed because he hasn't been able to master all the knowledge in the universe. Yes, he makes a deal with the devil, but the devil previously has made a deal with The Almighty. In the prologue, Mephistopheles crashes a gathering of the Heavenly Hosts to grouse about the lives of men on earth.

  "Must you endlessly complain?" asks The Almighty. "Is nothing ever right on earth?"
  "No, Lord, life is as rotten as before!"
  "Do you know Faust?" asks The Almighty, asserting the Doctor is His servant, and implying that the Devil might tempt him but won't win him over.
  Mephistopheles dares the Lord: "What do you wager? You will lose that man/If you permit me then to lead/Him subtly into the path I plan." And the Lord accepts the challenge.

Needless to say, the frustrated Faust is quite easily persuaded by Mephistopheles. But instead of leading Faust into greater learning, he leads him into debauchery. He introduces Faust to an innocent young girl called Gretchen in some scenes, Margarete in others. (In my head: "Her name was Magill, and she called herself Lil, but everyone knew her as Nancy.") Pregnant with Faust's child, Gretchen sees her family and future fall apart. After his birth, she drowns her son. As sheperishes, a Chorus of Angels appears and welcomes her into heaven. Faust is left with Mephistopheles.

The edition I read, published in 1959 by Heritage Press, presents only Part I of Goethe's two-part work. I have the impression from reviews by other LTers that Part II isn't very good, which may be why HP didn't present the full work. Fine with me. I'm proud of myself for reading Goethe's Faust. (The Devil made me do it!)
