    Faust is one of the pillars of Western literature. This classic drama presents the story of the scholar Faust, tempted into a contract with the Devil in return for a life of sensuality and power. Enjoyment rules, until Faust’s emotions are stirred by a meeting with Gretchen, and the tragic outcome brings Part 1 to an end. Part 2, written much later in Goethe’s life, places his eponymous hero in a variety of unexpected circumstances, causing him to reflect on humanity and its attitudes to life and death.

    Story
    If you could sum up Faust in three words, what would they be?

    Dramatic, moving, thought provoking


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Faust?

    Gretchen Tragedy, Walpurgis Night,


    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    These are veteran actors who provide an excellent reading.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Faust is really best served as poetry. This audible reading provides more than enough to stimulate the listener's imagination.


    Any additional comments?

    A few quibbles: It would be nice to be able to search the poem by section. Being one large file makes it a little difficult to move back and forth between selections. However, the pdf included does give the listener a guide to the divisions for the presentation.
