Read "Doctor Faustus" for EN2004: Drama: Reading and Performance, 2011

"Doctor Faustus" was a quick and simple read, only around 40 pages long. So far I've only read the A-text so it shall be interesting to read the B-text and see how it differs. I found it quite amusing in places, although perhaps unintentionally? Faustus's end was tragic but inevitable, although I'm not sure whether it suggests that God wouldn't forgive him or if he was too heavily under Lucifer's power to ask for forgiveness? Either way, I enjoyed reading the play and look forward to studying it this semester. 7/10
