4.0 étoiles sur 5 Dealing with the Devil 8 janvier 2013
Par James G. Bruen Jr. - Publié sur

Doctor Faustus is a surprisingly short and, for a 500 year old work, readable play. This free Kindle version has some OCR-type errors, but is itself very readable. There are hot links to and from footnotes.

Marlowe gives a chilling portrayal of a man who chooses to have the world - particularly through magic - temporarily in exchange for his soul eternally. Whenever Dr. Faustus questions his own choice, the Devil beseeches him and he reaffirms that choice. Dr. Faustus's intrigue with magic is all the more chilling in the historical context of Elizabethan England, when it was written, generally, and in particular the activities of her adviser John Dee and his fascination with the black arts. The play is no empty fantasy but a withering criticism of Dee and of the dabbling done during Elizabeth's reign, written with insight and wit. Those who try to summon and command angels will deal with the fallen angels.

The play can also be read as a critique of Puritanism/Calvinism by a Catholic, but there are also passages that leave room for argument by suggesting predestination; then again some ambiguity would be prudent if a Catholic were writing during the time of the Virgin Queen.

Enjoying this read, and the translation seems to be a good translation of this play. However, there are frequent typos, and in some places I think some text is skipped, because it seems to jump around a lot. I have not read any other translations or the original, or ever seen it performed for that matter. So possibly it is complete. Given the not infrequent typos, I worry that it may be missing things. It was free or a dollar (I don't remember), but I'm considering paying a little more for a better translation. It is a classic play, and certainly worth reading.I just worry this translation may be imperfect. Can't beat it for the price, though

It was a surprise to me to read that Faust had already been popularized by the excellent Christopher Marlowe way before Goethe who is more closely associated with Faust. I have indeed after reading "The Jew of Malta" as the precursor of Shakespeare's "Merchant of Venice" and this book, a precursor of Goethe's "Faust" only reaffirms my belief that Christopher Marlowe was the greater Man/Writer than these two popular figures for reasons that I don't care to entertain. In my book, Christopher Marlowe will live as the Original Genius English Writer. He writes so well and Faust flows with a intensity that is spell binding yet so quaint and real. The writer knows how to re-tell a tale most old, but tells it well. Of course all the god bit of heaven and hell is sheer nonsense but must be appreciated at the time of simple hearts. It is a book that tries to reaffirm society's chains around a free man. Let there be Free Men. Break these Biblical chains.

I enjoyed the way Christopher Marlowe distinguished between good and evil. He personified the internal struggles of Doctor Faustus. I will definitely recommend this play to friends and colleagues.

Stand still, you ever-moving spheres of heaven, That time may cease, and midnight never come; Fair Nature's eye, rise, rise again, and make Perpetual day; or let this hour be but A year, a month, a week, a natural day, That Faustus may repent and save his soul! &quote;
