An epic of Faustian preportions
A good read, Faust is a wonderful character in that he shows the desire for freedom and control in all of us. He shows us as we wave our dicks at god and hope for the best. I would have liked to see him redeem himself by the end or at least use his powers for awesome in the mean time. Overall a wonderful piece of Marlow with magic and sluts and everything.

This book is a stair step in reading classical (mid times) philisophy. Fautus is the yin yang, of future western european challenge philisophy.
