About this title


Bored and depressed, Faust tries to take his own life and in the process calls on the Devil who sends a representative, Mephistopheles to serve Faust for a set number of years. At the end of the term however, Faust will be damned and condemned to Hell. Faust agrees and uses his cohort for a number of tasks. When he falls in love, he strives for a better life and in the end his love dies and pleads with God to save her beloved Faust's soul from eternal corruption.

About the Author:

The German poet, novelist, playwright, courtier, scientist, and philosopher Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832) ranks among the greatest authors of Western literature. His best known writings include "The Sorrows of Young Werther" (his first novel) and "Faust" (a drama in two parts).
