About this Item

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. . . ." Straw-colored fabric boards with red velvet spine, now darkened till spine titles barely legible. Corners of boards toed in and worn (outermost half-inch) Page edges also darkened (except top edges, where at least 50 percent gilt remains.) Interior coated-stock text block quite nice: solid, tight; toned only slightly toward ivory, though there are occasional foxed smudges at lower outside page corners. Richly illustrated with the sometimes bizarre B&W art nouveau drawings of Harry Clarke. Bookseller Inventory # 000122
