Faust and the quest for power and success

“Alas, I have studied philosophy, / the law as well as medicine, / and to my sorrow, theology; / studied them well with ardent zeal, / yet here I am, a wretched fool, / no wiser than I was before.”

“Who are you then?”
“I am part of that power which eternally wills evil and eternally works good.”
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Faust: First Part

Saturday, February 21, we will discuss Dr. Faustus by Marlowe and Faust by Goethe. It’s going to be very interesting!!
