Read from February 11 to 12, 2011

Read this for a class (the same class I read Paradise Lost for). It's also relevant to my interests, what with the whole "sell your soul to the Devil" thing I have going. (I am attempting to plot a story that is centered around the concept, so reading how it's been done before has been helpful.)

It was pretty good — some moments seemed ridiculously funny and I'm not sure if they were supposed to be. Other moments were harrowing and very, very disturbing. (The end... Oh, just the end. And it's a foregone conclusion, too!) Ultimately, it gave me some good ideas about how the soul transaction thing might work. I also want to read Goethe's take eventually.
