E.A. Bucchianeri
“Upon the publication of Goethe’s epic drama, the Faustian legend had reached an almost unapproachable zenith. Although many failed to appreciate, or indeed, to understand this magnum opus in its entirety, from this point onward his drama was the rule by which all other Faust adaptations were measured. Goethe had eclipsed the earlier legends and became the undisputed authority on the subject of Faust in the eyes of the new Romantic generation. To deviate from his path would be nothing short of blasphemy.”
E.A. Bucchianeri, Faust: My Soul Be Damned for the World Vol. 2

Oscar Wilde
“You are a wonderful creation. You know more than you think you know, just as you know less than you want to know.”
Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray
