Originally published between 1909 and 1917 under the name "Harvard Classics," this stupendous 51-volume set-a collection of the greatest writings from literature, philosophy, history, and mythology-was assembled by American academic CHARLES WILLIAM ELIOT (1834-1926), Harvard University's longest-serving president. Also known as "Dr. Eliot's Five Foot Shelf," it represented Eliot's belief that a basic liberal education could be gleaned by reading from an anthology of works that could fit on five feet of bookshelf. Volume XIX features important plays that continue to inspire modern works of literature: [ Faust, Part I, the 1808 deal-with-the-Devil morality play by German writer JOHANN WOLFGANG VON GOETHE (1749-1832), as well as his 1788 tragedy Egmont and his 1797 verse novelette of the French Revolution, Hermann and Dorothea [ Dr. Faustus, by English dramatist CHRISTOPHER MARLOWE (1564-1593), the earlier take on the Faust legend, which remains one of the finest examples of Elizabethan drama

Mephistopheles (Mep), an agent of Satan, travels down the timeline from 2020 to 1620 and meets Dr. Faustus, a researcher seeking more and more knowledge who is impressed with the scientific improvements in 2020. Aided by his modern gadgets, Faustus saves the life of the queen and the Princess's puppy. Mep changes Dr. Faustus’ personality and makes him look like a Lord and he wins the heart of the princess. With the help of Mep, he assists the king to defeat the neighbouring country and he is made the king of the country. Impressed by his changed personality, the princess proposes to him. He falls a prey to the daughter of the defeated king as plotted by Mep and meets a violent death in the end. Mep resurfaces again in 2020 and rules the Silicon Valley of California. He challenges to wipe out the human race with his gadgets before the end of this century as he did with Dr. Faustus in 1620 and he gives very valid reasons why the human race does not deserve to live beyond 2099.

The Feminization of Dr Faustus

(Faust II, 12096-12103) [Doctor Marianus (prostrated, praying): Look up to the ... mind Become ready to serve you; Virgin, 50 THE FEMINIZATION OF DR. FAUSTUS.

While the decline of the male hero in nineteenth- and twentieth-century literature is usually studied in isolation, Druxes uses a major manifestation of this phenomenon&—the failing power of the Faust myth&—as an interpretive lens through which to illuminate the corresponding rise in the viability of female Faustian heroes or would-be heroes. Her study of the female Faust figure in the realist novels of Stendhal, Gauthier, Keller, James, and the contemporary writer Morgner is further unusual in that she carries out her analyses both against the background of the sociohistorical factors conditioning these female figures and with reference to the mutual interaction of plot and novel form. Since nineteenth-century writers make female subjectivity the arena in which the conflicts of male subjecthood are debated, their attempts to create female versions of the heroic quest for self-knowledge speak not only to the crisis of the male model but also to the crisis of the realistic novel. Using psychoanalytic theory and French feminist and deconstructionist theory, Helga Druxes shows how the female Faustian quest for worldly knowledge and subjecthood develops a new concept of identity that takes its social constructedness into account, and she demonstrates some of the transgressive narrative strategies that male and female writers have employed, embodying their dissent not only in the creation of a female Faust but in their visions of an authentic female desire for selfhood and socially regenerative female bonding.

Dr. Faustus is one of the jewels of early modern English drama, and is still widely performed today. Interestingly, the play has come down to the contemporary audience in two distinct versions that have become known as the 'A' and the 'B' texts. David Bevington and Eric Rasmussen, who edited the original Revels edition over twenty years ago (and are two of the most eminent editors currently working), have hit upon the fascinating idea of presenting both texts on facing pages. This allows readers to compare the two ‘versions’, the ‘A’ text which is the one closest to Marlowe, and the longer ‘B’ text with additions by Samuel Rowley; in this unique edition, the reader is made aware of the changing tastes of audiences, the stage history of the play, and of just how intricate ‘editing’ a play can be. With a concise and illuminating introduction, and relevant notes and images, this Revels Student Edition of the 'A' and 'B' texts of Dr. Faustus will prove to be an enthralling document, and an excellent edition for student and theatre-goer alike.
