Read in July, 2009

Goethe unloads round after round of his education into your eyeballs. Cannot be read without a second book explaining what is happening. Lacks stage direction, to say the least. The story is incredible. The philosophy is intriguing. And between Faust's workers paradise, Mephisto's love of the eternal void, and Goethe's love/women/striving message- I'm pretty sure everything worth saying about our understanding of life on earth is somewhere in this play.
