Overview
Walter Arndt's translation of Faust reintroduces not only the sense of the German original but also Goethe's enormously varied metrics and rhyme schemes. This edition includes Parts I and II complete. "Backgrounds" includes the medieval chapbook, the puppet play, and a surviving fragment of C. F. Lessing's Faust play. The author's plans and sketches and a rich selection of his letters and comments to Eckermann trace Goethe's lifelong involvement in the work, as does an analytical table showing the phases of Faust's composition. "Contemporary Reactions" Shows how rapidly Faust came to be seen as the quintessential expression of German Romantic consciousness. "Modern Criticism" has been chosen to help readers perceive and understand Faust's extraordinary thematic and formal complexity.
