Not a review of the translation or Part 2 but of Faust Part 1.
It hardly seems like a tragedy, just an ugly, ugly, story about a man who, soon after his pact with Mephistopheles and drinking a youth elixir, falls in lust with the first teenage girl he sees and spouting love, but without and iota of concern for her well being, DESTROYS her life and family. Faust is one of the key texts in the Canon of Western Literature, but this is NOT about a man in pursuit of Truth. My rating of 3 stars should be taken with a grain of salt, but I'll take Shakespeare any day. It's famous Walpurgis night scene, while having little to do with the story, is a fine piece of the dark fantastic.
