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

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.

Faustus is a very learned scholar-so learned he's bored and wants more. He wants everything. In pursuit of this, he decides to study Magic and eventually summons a devil, Mephistophilis. Once summoned, Faustus attempts to bind the devil to him, But Mephisto says he serves Lucifer and the good doctor says he'll sign his soul away to have his very own devil to do his bidding, as well as, you know, everything else. Sort of a genie in a lamp with endless wishes.

Mephisto goes to get permission/deliver the message. Upon Lucifer's blessing, Mephisto returns and Faustus has made up a contract saying he wants twenty four years of whatever his heart, mind, and body desires and then Satan can have his soul. The deal is signed in blood and Faustus begins the rest of his life.

Throughout the play his good angel/bad angel tell him to repent before he goes any further/he's already beyond redemption (depending upon which angel is speaking). This is a scenario that will be replayed multiple times.

This is a cautionary play about what happens when you turn your back on God, so it goes as you'd expect.

I was surprised by how much Mephisto and Lucifer both seemed to try to convince Faustus to turn back towards salvation, but he was bent on his own damnation. They had much more depth than what you'd see today, where evil is pure evil. But when they first meet, Mephisto talks about how everywhere that isn't Heaven is Hell. And at one point, Lucifer shows Faustus personifications of the Seven Deadly Sins and those beings were not enjoying themselves the way you'd think. Faustus was blind to this, however.

The relationship between Faustus and Mephisto reminded me a great deal of the relationship between Light and Ryuk in Death Note . I checked and the manga is mentioned on the Wikipedia page about works based on Faust above. Yet another excellent reason to read the books.

About the good and evil angels... I laughed when they first appeared-you simply don't expect something you saw in cartoons to happen in an olde timey play-but it makes sense that they'd have been around since Plato since everyone wrestles with their conscience. I couldn't help picturing someone in wings and a halo and someone else in plastic horns and a pointy tail, though.

This is the first English telling of the Faust tale so if you want a foundation in the legend you must read this at some point and I'm certainly glad I did.

Haven't gotten all the way through it yet, but so far Mr. Marlowe's use of language does an excellent job communicating the plot and the message behind it, as well as being witty and genuinely an enjoyable read. Definitely recommended.
