About this Item

Very good copy without dust jacket. There is no date indicated, presumed 1944 edition. Text in English. Pages and cover are crisp, tight and unmarked. Yellow-ish cover with maroon velvet spine where at least 75 percent of gilt remains. Some minor finger tip dirt spots on front cover edges. Inside of the book in Fine condition, completely clean. Richly illustrated with fantastic B&W art nouveau drawings of Harry Clarke. Faust sells his soul to the devil. A verse drama in 25 scenes. 'Goethe's poems exercise a great sway over me, not only by their meaning, but also by their rhythm' said Beethoven. 'It is a language which stimulates me to composition.' How then, Taylor asks, can translations of 'Faust' into mere formless prose suffice? For 'poetry is not simply a fashion of expression; it is the form of expression absolutely required by a certain class of ideas.'. Bookseller Inventory # 000458
