    Faust First Part Goethe's Faust #1 Johann Wolfgang von Goethe Peter Salm TranslatorJohann Wolfgang von Goethe's Faust is a tragic play in two parts usually known in English as Faust Part One and Faust Part Two Faust is considered by many to be Goethe's magnum opus and the greatest work of German literature The principal characters of Faust Part One includeHeinrich FaustMephistopheles the DevilGretchen Faust's love short for Margarete; Goethe uses both formsMarthe Gretchen's neighbourValentin Gretchen's brotherWagner Faust's attendantFaust Part One takes place in multiple settings the first of which is Heaven The demon Mephistopheles makes a bet with God he says that he can lure God's favourite human being Faust who is striving to learn everything that can be known away from righteous pursuits The next scene takes place in Faust's study where Faust despairing at the vanity of scientific humanitarian and religious learning turns to magic for the showering of infinite knowledge He suspects however that his attempts are failing Frustrated he ponders suicide but rejects it as he hears the echo of nearby Easter celebrations begin He goes for a walk with his assistant Wagner and is followed home by a stray poodleIn Faust's study the poodle transforms into Mephistopheles Faust makes an arrangement with him Mephistopheles will do everything that Faust wants while he is here on Earth and in exchange Faust will serve the Devil in Hell Faust's arrangement is that if he is pleased enough with anything Mephistopheles gives him that he wants to stay in that moment forever then he will die in that moment تاریخ نخستین خوانش روز یازدهم ماه می سال 1991میلادیبخش نخست با مقدمه‌ ای در باب بهشت آغاز می‌شود؛ خداوند بنا به خواهش شیطان به او اجازه می‌دهد، تا درستی و راستی فاوست، خدمتگزار خدا را آزمایش کند؛ مفیستوفلس، با فاوست سالخورده معامله‌ ای می‌کند؛ اگر فاوست برای یک لحظه با این معامله موافقت کند، روح از تنش پرواز خواهد کرد؛ فاوست دوباره جوان می‌شود، و با مفیستوفلس به مسافرت می‌پردازد، تا از تمام لذایذ زمینی برخوردار گردد؛ در زمین عاشق دختر ساده‌ ای به نام «مارگارت» می‌شود، سپس به او خیانت می‌کند، و مسئول سقوط و مرگ او می‌شود؛ مفیستوفلس گمان می‌کند، که روح «مارگارت» را اسیر خواهد کرد، ولی صفای عشق او نسبت به «فاوست» و خودداری او از نجات یافتن از چنگال مرگ، سبب نجات او می‌شود؛ بخش نخست نمایش به پایان می‌رسد ولی «فاوست» هنوز در دنیای شهوات و هوس‌ها، آن لحظه پر شکوه هستی را که در آرزوی به چنگ آوردنش است، نیافته است؛تاریخ بهنگام رسانی 05071399هجری خورشیدی؛ ا شربیانی

    I reread Faust yesterday and it left me wondering pondering again as so oftenWhy don't we talk about Gretchen? And I mean Gretchen as a subject not as a toy to be used by Faust and Mephistopheles in their joint midlife crisis distractive game?Why don't we talk about the amazing achievements of the modern world in which a brother like Valentin wouldn't get to call his sister a whore for having a lover? Why don't we talk about the bliss of choice? Gretchen today could have her dark affair with a middle aged charismatic narcissist and then raise a child on her own She doesn't have to die or marry to become Dorothy to Casauban or Effi to Innstetten either Let us celebrate the end of Gretchen's life as a social evil and the beginning of Gretchen as a sexual being without guilt shame and doom? The world will never be free from Faustian egomaniacs but they may face women who speak up and expect than Gretchen ever could for herself Gretchen lived too early too much Just some thoughts on reading Faust yet againThis is not a review More a continued discussion with myself on a play that keeps challenging me since high schoolI cannot attempt to write a review of Goethe's Faust It is a much too personal experience growing with each time I reread it Since high school I have been thinking at least five times This is the perfect Goethe moment his work is written for ME NOW it can't get any better deeper or any satisfyingWell apparently it can After maybe three or four years I picked up Faust again and found that I had finally grown up enough to identify with his most famous uote the one I had reverently learned by heart as a studentBanging my head against the wall today while marking papers trying to figure out how to explain the developments in the world to my own children and the adolescents I am in charge of I looked up and literally felt Mephisto's presence in the room Unable to get rid of the feeling I looked at my shelf with my all time favourites picked up my Faust with its almost broken spine and opened it to read my own life the struggle to find answers the longing for knowledge and understanding the futile hope that my teaching will make a difference and the creepy scary thought that it might all be meaningless because the majority of our planet is sold body and soul to devilish shallowness and indifference It almost sets my heart burning Now here I am a fool for sureNo wiser than I was beforeMaster Doctor’s what they call me And I’ve been ten years alreadyCrosswise arcing to and froLeading my students by the noseAnd see that we can know nothingIt almost sets my heart burningDa steh ich nun ich armer TorUnd bin so klug als wie zuvor;Heiße Magister heiße Doktor garUnd ziehe schon an die zehen JahrHerauf herab und uer und krummMeine Schüler an der Nase herum –Und sehe daß wir nichts wissen könnenDas will mir schier das Herz verbrennenAs hopeless as the message and the rest of the Faust plot is it gave me solace to share this moment yet again with the master of masters GoetheNow here I am a fool for sure

    First impression Goethe could write his tuckus off Rarely have I encountered prose that commingles in such bounty the trifecta of being at once gorgeous to the eye imbued with passion and saturated with depth and meaning Faust has all three and I was pulled into the seductive narrative from the momentous opening wonderfully titled “Prologue from Heaven” through the final dramatic climax I must briefly pause here to add a ualifier to my comments which relate to the version I experienced and not to my enjoyment of it Audiblecom usually a professional high uality purveyor pulled a bit of a bamboozle on me in this case I acuired the “unabridged” reading by full cast which came in at 4 hours in length Now that is just about right for Part 1 of Faust and so I thought I was in for a treat as I listened along with my own copy of the novel Turns out much to my chagrin that the 4 hours was an “adaptation” of both Parts 1 and 2 Thus as wonderful as the experience was I did not get a chance to absorb all of the detail and nuances of the storyI plan to read the complete Faust Parts 1 and 2 in the future and will share my thoughts on the work as a whole at that time End sad story pause So God like a lonely parent maybe in need of a hug allows Satan to throw a temptation Faust’s way to prove that the man is still “of the flock” in a scaled down boil free version of the Book of Job As my introductory uote illustrates Faust is a brilliant scholar who has completed a study of all the world’s knowledge and I thought I read a lot and yet feels no wiser for the accomplishment Feeling that there is to existence than rote knowledge of the past which echoes Goethe’s own belief in the primacy of emotion over reason Faust longs for deeper meaning and understanding that is hidden from him He becomes depressed and contemplating suicide Goethe’s non subtle hint that Faust’s faith is than a tad shaky allow the Devil access to himFaust is visited by Mephistopheles and offered a life of hedonistic excess and earthly pleasures as a means of gaining greater understanding of the universe Faust who apparently had never watched any episodes of The Twilight Zone foolishly agrees and bargains away his soul Faust will die and the Devil will win if Faust can ever be made to be “content” with a moment in his life If ever I lie down in sloth and base inaction Then let that moment be my end If by your false cajolery You lull me into self sufficiency If any pleasure you can give Deludes me let me cease to live I offer you this wager From here the two take flight literary on a world wind tour of debauchery and debauchery “Let's plunge ourselves into the roar of time the whirl of accident; may pain and pleasure success and failure shift as they will it's only action that can make a man”Soon after this we are introduced to Gretchen the other main player in this tragedy whose relationship with Faust will explore key issues of faith and redemption It was this relationship that I thought received the shortest shrift in the adaptation that I listened to so I will leave further thoughts on this until I have experienced the complete work The language is gorgeous and drips emotion on almost every line Some might think this falls too far into the realm of melodrama but I loved it and found it vigorous and passionate The end is wonderful with the necessary uestions answered but certain larger ueries left for us to contemplate A wonderful experience abridged though it may have been and one that I strongly encourage everyone to read 40 stars HIGHLY RECOMMENDEDPS I didn’t have a place to slide this into my review but I wanted to share one last uote from the story this one from the devil He and Faust have begun their tour of vice and come across a coven of witches who don’t recognize the Prince of Lies Do you know me now? Skinny cadaverous bitch do you know your lord and master? Why don't I Smash you to pieces tell me why You and your ape familiars? Must I teach You some respect for my red doublet? What Is this cock's feather eh? My face have I been hiding it? You learn your place Old hag Am I to name myself or not? Good good stuff

    I read Johann Goethe's Faust in English and partially in German during a college course many years ago It had a huge impact on me as a person and me as a writer Due to it being somewhat out there I held back a full 5 rating; however I cannot stress how much this book makes you think Beware it's a little heavy on the literary side but it's still worth a read even if you just read the first portion That said 4 out of 5 starsDetailed Review about 13 of a paper I wrote about it a few years agoWhen I first picked up Goethe’s famous masterpiece Faust I was hesitant about reading it I read Goethe’s work while lying on my bed a few hours before I went to sleep My room was uiet because everyone else was already asleep I was able to read and consciously take in the contents of the work I generally don’t like to be told what literature to read; however after reading through the Prologue in Heaven I was intrigued by the plot of Faust As I began reading the first part I was a bit disturbed by the fact that it was not in prose but that it was in poetical verse I have never been a great fan of poetry as a genre of literature Thus I had mixed feelings when it came to reading Goethe’s famous literary work Faust from the beginningI wanted to learn something from the story as I do from all literature Authors don’t just write for ‘no’ reason; they wish to accomplish something I then strove to understand the reasons for the literary work’s existence When I skimmed Faust for the first time I tried to read it for pleasure but it was a little too hard I needed to stop and understand what as going on in each scene However I soon realized that I was able to place myself inside the text in several different ways It was at this point that Faust actually appealed to me; I saw myself in the novel as the character of Faust fighting against the devilish Mephistopheles I have always struggled with wanting everything from material things to the admiration of others As a man of flesh and blood I naturally want great intelligence power and love I have always wanted to be number one a perfectionist just like FaustSo while I was reading Faust I was truly reading a biography of my own life albeit on a much larger scale I too have lost some faith in my religion and I wonder if I will be saved; however unlike Faust at the time I read it I had yet to want someone as much as he wanted Margaret Gretchen Maybe if I were under the devil’s spells like Faust was I would have fallen just as hard for the woman I do have the addictive personality that would lead me in the same direction as Faust With all of this in mind I read through the novel as though I were Faust I took on his persona argued with Mephistopheles and wished that I had never been born in the end of the work It is not easy to live a life completely free from the clutches of evil When you are hopeless and in despair you need help Often humans are not strong enough to recognize from whom they are getting help Faust enabled me to foresee what would happen to me if I were subject to the devil’s influenceFaust is a man worthy of my admiration All throughout the book both Faust and the actions he sought fascinated me Like I said before I felt as though I was reading or watching a movie of my own life It was as though a dream had come true where I was able to align myself with the devil The fears that I have in reality weren’t present enough in my dreams to stop myself from associating with some Mephistophelean devil I was able to see what would happen if I took on the persona of evil incarnate turned into man Faust enabled me to have an out of body experience where I could see what would happen to me if I became what I have always been curious about becoming A devil influenced manThroughout the work of Faust by Goethe I was able to live experiences vicariously Faust enabled me to try things that I only dreamed about trying I really felt as though I were reading a novel about myself I think that this is why the Faustian theme has persisted throughout time; men and women everywhere have struggled within themselves fighting between good and evil to achieve their goals and desires I am no different About Me For those new to me or my reviews here's the scoop I read A LOT I write A LOT And now I blog A LOT First the book review goes on Goodreads and then I send it on over to my WordPress blog at where you'll also find TV Film reviews the revealing and introspective 365 Daily Challenge and lots of blogging about places I've visited all over the world And you can find all my social media profiles to get the details on the whowhatwhenwhere and my pictures Leave a comment and let me know what you think Vote in the poll and ratings Thanks for stopping by Note All written content is my original creation and copyrighted to me but the graphics and images were linked from other sites and belong to them Many thanks to their original creators

    Faust is probably the most world known German poetry and translated in different languages but can poetry be translated in a different language without loosing it‘s character and purpose?Per definition poetry is literature that evokes a concentrated imaginative awareness of experience or a specific emotional response through language chosen and arranged for its meaning sound and rhythm I had a look at a englisch translation and depending on the translator the writing still might have some rhythm sound and meaning to it but you are not reading FaustPassages and words are translated incorrectly in order to create a sound that doesn‘t resemble Goethe at all but still offers a rhythm to the reader that flatters their own language It‘s the translators original work The characters motives expressions and even the content of the story differ from what Goethe intended to express It misses depth it misses purpose it misses meaning I don‘t mean that as an accuse but enlightenmentI admire Goethe for his langue it‘s what characterizes his abilities it‘s the core and meaning of his expression His words are chosen wisely carefully picked thought about for several years before he finished they can‘t be replaced In honor of his work I therefore suggest to not read it in anything but German or you‘re missing out on Faust in one way or another Every language has their great poets it‘s their home it‘s where they belong

    If you're into stuff like this you can read the full reviewTo Plug the Mighty Hole Withal Faust First Part by Goetheoriginal review 2004I’m planning on spending a few weeks on Goethe’s Faust in multiple translations and as much of the German as I can manage supplemented by hundreds of pages of notes and commentaryI first read the book while in high school in the totally un annotated Bayard Taylor translation from Modern Library – one of the texts I’m currently reading I’m still pretty fond of Taylor’s version – with some exceptions generally preferring him to Walter Arndt in the Norton Critical Edition Taylor’s a relatively local boy – born in Kenneth Suare PA where the town library carries his name

    Dear friend all theory is gray and green the golden tree of lifeWhat else to say? Towering as an archetype akin to Hamlet the Inferno and White Whale this tale of pact has been absorbed into a our cultural bones like an isotope It is telling to consider that I listened to Tavener while reading this I recently gave Pandora a spin but found that I owned Schnittke than was afforded by mystation but if I leave such will I miss those Penn Station ads?I will say that I should've read my Norton critical edition well actually my wife's copy the one I bought for her in Columbus Ohio ten years ago I went with a standard Penguin copy and I'm sure many of the historic references were lost for me No one should consider that I regard Faust as emblematic of power politics in the US or a possible Brexit across the water I'm too feeble for such extrapolation

    Faust by Goethe was the very first book apart from textbooks of course I ever put my hands on It was assigned to me when I was in middle school for my Spanish class I know it's a German play but the teacher was encouraging us to read by asking the whole classroom to donate a book for the course put it in a box with the others and then randomly pick up one of them each month — now that I think of it the teacher should have payed attention to the books we brought since I don't think  Faust was appropriate for a twelve year old I chose however this play by Goethe having no idea what it was about And well I remained so for twelve years since I never read than ten pages perhaps until four days ago that I finally got a copy of it Unlike many readers I know I didn't acuire my taste for literature and reading from an early age; I didn't grew up reading stories and I didn't ever feel like I was immersed in a magic world of fantastic creatures and rainbows — what some people claim literature is about Instead I got interested in such delightful activities for two main reasons One of them was that I was a Radiohead fan in high school and there's this song based on Orwell's 1984 but I was told that it was based on  Animal Farm false so I thought it would be a good idea to read it The other reason is that by this same time I took a philosophy course and I remember I was so amazed by Plato's allegory of the cave that I finally decided I wanted to know about life and I thought books had the answers of the many uestions I asked myself and everything I wanted to know; that within their pages I was going to find the answer Now that I've read a little bit I've come to realize that literature is such a passionate and sublime art indeed but it hardly provides answers and it actually makes you uestion and — which is great don't get me wrong for it makes  you try harder to think for yourself — but I'd say one answer makes two uestions In this everlasting search for meaning I found myself in Dr Heinrich Faust the main character in this poetic play Even though unlike him I haven't studied  philosophy medicine and theology with ardent zeal I do feel like a  wretched fool I think Goethe's point was to make an emphasis in this lack of something in human understanding and that no matter how hard we try there'll be always something greater than us that we won't be able to understand with our minds designed for only three dimensions like Ivan Karamazov said It's important to take into consideration the fact that Goethe did believe in God that for him God was this higher being that begot mankind; but he was not in favor of the way the Church was organized; and both believes and disbelieves are brought up to discussion throughout the whole play He believed for instance that God made the Universe perfect and so did the Angels believed; but that's when Mephistopheles the fallen angel enters the scene asking for permission to say a word He says the Universe isn't perfect since Man still feels miserable Then he makes a wager with God upon Faust's soul with arguments based on the book of Job that is that if Faust's life is changed by blow after blow of tragedy he would stop being God's faithful son though unlike the Biblical character who at the end realises about God's highness in this play Faust seems to be and miserable Also there's the fact that in  Job the fallen angel didn't exactly hang out with him like Mephisto did with Faust Thus when the man's life comes to an end he on whose side Faust is will keep his soul Therefore there are many converging points in both books but they differ from each otherSo Faust is a very learned man who has studied everything that ever existed and yet he still feels he's missing something about existence something that isn't written down in those books and that perhaps cannot be put to words He even struggles while trying to translate the word  logos in the Gospel of Luke  In the beginning was the Word He wonders whether it was the deed instead of the word because he feels that words literacy do not lit his soul the way perhaps a passionate deed would He then expresses the words that have become famous because of their depth and their importance in this work 'Two souls alas dwell in my breast each seeks to rule without the other' Thus he begins to look beyond theories and tries something new magic and alchemy I don't want to get into specific details about the plot  but there's a point when he summons the Earth Spirit something that according to some sources was Goethe's own contribution to his supernatural play being no former record of such a spirit either in Christianity or in pagan mythology — I think for Goethe the Earth Spirit represented an instance of God like when Moses saw the brush burned in fire And it's the Spirit who lowers this learned man to his human condition making him aware of his delimited understanding Faust however persists and trying to prove his godliness he tries to commit suicide when suddenly the the church bells ring and an angelic choir from above is heard announcing Christ's resurrection Later in the play Faust finds a lost poodle and takes it home when suddenly the animal reshapes into Mephistopheles who unlike the Earth Spirit makes the doctor believe he can achieve anything if he stays with him and serves him when his soul leaves his body; to which Faust answers that little does he care for the afterlife when all he wants is to actually  feel he's living this life The agreement is settled with blood Gray my friend is every theory and green alone life's golden tree Then at a witch's place Faust sees a beautiful woman in the mirror and he asks Mephisto to grant him the wish of possessing so beautiful a woman and after some mumbo jumbo by the witch he takes a potion of sorts to achieve his passionate goals Then he meets Gretchen also known as Margaret and that's what Faust's misery gets worse — and even worse for Gretchen who before meeting Faust and his horrid companion was such a pure creature that at first Mephisto does not think he can get her Eventually Gretchen is persuaded by Faust enchantments — of course gotten by such a supernatural aid — but as her passion towards Faust increases misfortune falls upon her family until the final disgrace comes before which Faust is ushered by Mephisto to the  Walpurus Night an exotic event hosted by witches and having paganism as entertainment — I guess it's like the Super Bowl for witches Later we find out that during this exotic and frightful evening Gretchen lost her mind after his brother murder by Faust's evil companion called her a whore in his last adieu so she drowns her baby is taken to prison and given a death sentence Faust blames Mephistopheles for distracting him at the Walpurus Night instead of taking him to save Gretchen This is when I realised Goethe used Mephisto to point out the flaws of our minds sometimes in earnest sometimes in jest like people's tendency to blame external sometimes supernatural causes for their mistakes Gretchen's given the chance to scape prison helped by her lover and his friend but instead of going evil ways she chooses what would seem as tragedy and condemnation to some like Mephistopheles but under the gaze of the Heavenly she's saved leaving an open door for Faust to go the same way and make the right decision I'm afraid Goethe wrote the second part until the last year of his life The redirection of Margarete's path was perhaps inevitable once she entered Faust's toxic influence but in the end she had the chance to choose either condemnation or salvation and perhaps that's Goethe's main point to remark virtue through iniuity It works similarly perhaps as Milton did in his  Paradise Lost As a matter of fact like the latter took the epic poems as notary influence Shakespeare had the same kind of impact with the author of  Faust — nonetheless his gift and his techniue stand on their ownThis is a must read classic and it is one of those books I call  a literary delight But all the subjects I've tried perhaps unsuccessfully to expose in this review are precisely the reasons why I don't think  Faust is a good choice for a twelve year old beginner Not because of its difficulty but I think as one grows older one has a better chance of appreciating Goethe's perfectly constructed verses of having a different perspective upon all the sorrowful theological obscure and erotic points by him exposed It's frightening yet beautiful; it's heavenly yet humane; it's a play and a poem I'm not as learned as Doctor Faust but I think I found in reading this book the kind of fervor he was looking for I awake with horror in the morning and bitter tears well up in me when I must face each day that in its course cannot fulfill a single wish not one Faust and the Earth Spirit Illustrated by Goethe himself
