Faust: A Tragedy In Two Parts & The Urfaust (Wordsworth Classics of World Literature)

Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

Translated, with an Introduction and Notes by John R. Williams.Goethes Faust is a classic of European literature. Based on the fable of the man who traded his soul for superhuman powers and knowledge, it became the lifes work of Germanys greatest poet. Beginning with an intriguing wager between God and Satan, it charts the life of a deeply flawed individual, his struggle against the nihilism of his diabolical companion Mephistopheles. Part One presents Fausts pact with the Devil and the harrowing tragedy of his love affair with the young Gretchen. Part Two shows Fausts experience in the world of public affairs, including his encounter with Helen of Troy, the emblem of classical beauty and culture. The whole is a symbolic and panoramic commentary on the human condition and on modern European history and civilisation. This new translation of both parts of Faust preserves the poetic character of the original, its tragic pathos and hilarious comedy. In addition, John Williams has translated the Urfaust, a fascinating glimpse into the young Goethes imagination, and a selection from the draft scenarios for the Walpurgis Night witches sabbath - material so ribald and blasphemous that Goethe did not dare publish it.

The first of these two brief scenes is the only section in the published drama written in prose, and the other is in irregular unrhymed verse. Faust has apparently learned that Gretchen has drowned the newborn child in her despair, and has been condemned to death for infanticide. Now she awaits her execution. Introduction. Faust, Goethe's great dramatic poem in two parts, is his crowning work. Even though it is based on the medieval legend of a man who sold his soul to the devil, it actually treats modern man's sense of alienation and his need to come to terms with the world in which he lives.

“Goethe’s Faust is an enigmatic and perhaps barely translatable masterpiece. Its grotesque and exuberant part 2 must be the most outrageous poem in the western canon. Martin Greenberg’s revised version conveys the outrage yet also shows again and again why the poem does stand with the major works of the western tradition.”—Harold Bloom
