Doctor Faustus is a tragic figure He is a confused man bursting with ambition and a thirst for knowledge but at the same time conflicted in his morals Faustus is also a genius he has studied Aristotle s teachings but finds them beneath him and craves something suited to his superior intellect He decides to study the dark art of Necromancy Through this he summons the devil and he uickly sells his soul for power thus this could only end one way A Tragic fall from grace His waxen wings did mount above his reach And melting heavens conspired his overthrow This of course refers to Icarus who flew to close to the sun and plummeted to the earth This is foretelling Faustus downfall and eventual fate as written by his own hands and in his own blood Indeed Faustus is unbearably arrogant He refers to himself in the third person It sets himself aside from other characters In addition he believes through his achievements he will be canonized and revered across the world His lust for power is born totally from vain desire fuelling his imagined superiority He wants a god like status but does not consider the conseuences His power comes in the form of Mephastophilis a servant of the devil who has to obey Faustus s commands Mephastophilis is also a tragic figure He attempts to warn Faustus of the conseuences of selling ones soul to the Devil and the eventual hell that waits which in his case refers to Mephastophilis existence without the presence of God Faustus in his naivet chooses to ignore him as he believes hell to be a fable and in this does not consider the result of his actions Faustus conflicting nature is represented by the good angel and the evil angel which speak in his ear one casting doubts and the other encouraging him to sin These make several appearances during the play and underline Faustus eternal doubts and decision making Some people are never satisfied Initially he is disappointed with the knowledge his power has granted him but the seduction is renewed as Lucifer presents him with the seven deadly sins This fascinates Faustus who likes this idea of hell and what it contains It could be argued that Faustus is cheated He has a small understanding of the realities of hell and initially believes it to be a fable So when presented with the sins he believes these to be a manifestation of hells contents and likes the sound of itAn often raised controversy about the play is Is Faustus the victim Is he being sinned against I can see the origins of this speculation he is coerced into his decision but it is ultimately his alone Mephastophilis encourages him when he begins to waiver though that is not till much later Lucifer himself is the main entrapper He presents Faustus with the seven deadly sins which delight him and convince him that this is the path but yet again he could just say no and repent if he wished to Is Faustus a sinner I believe he is Instead of using his ill begotten powers for the advancement of mankind he uses them for vain indulgence eg playing a trick on the pope The summoning of Helen of Troy as sums up the play perfectly Faustus Helen is the knowledge he took and the destruction of Troy is his condemnation to hell This is a brilliant play with strong didactical roots that drew heavily on Icarus s fall I think a lot can be taken from this play

Dr Faustus is the only Marlowe s play that I reread periodically I remember being blown away with it the first time I read years ago back in Uni and it stayed with with over the years I still consider it to be his best play Its complexity lies in its wonderful ambiguity Marlowe asked some revolutionary uestions in this one This Elizabethan playwright was not afraid to tackle scientific theological and human uestions The legend of Doctor Faustus gave flight to his imagination and his play is the only preserved first dramatization of it that we know ofBased on a German legend and possibly a lost play the plot of Dr Faustus is pretty straightforward and simple Marlowe didn t come up with the storythe concept himself nor did he focus much on the plot Marlowe is not the best dramatist in terms of developing a story and timing it perfectly but his verse is always potent with meaning As a playwright Marlowe is visibly influenced by the classics Moreover he focuses primarily on philosophical and intellectual uestions Marlowe made the legend of Faustus interesting by introducing interesting moral dilemmas and ambiguity He infused curiosity for knowledgeable into his protagonist making him complex than just a power hungry men Faustus intellectual cravings his classical education and scientific uestioning make him a typical Renaissance man Marlowe was just the man to write such an intriguing play being a very educated man with a troubled relationship with religion himself Indeed Marlowe breathed much complexity into this tale The Tragical History of the Life and Death of Doctor Faustus is a beautifully written play that stands the test of time well For me personally the most memorable lines in the play are the following Mephistopheles Why this is hell nor am I out of itThink st thou that I who saw the face of GodAnd tasted the eternal joys of heavenAm not tormented with ten thousand hellsIn being deprived of everlasting bliss The play stroke me as a bit unusual in that it seems to be most powerful at its beginning but that might be for a reason Throughout the play there are many references to hell It was uite bold of Marlowe to insist that hell is a state of mind I would say Not something preached at the churches of the time or at the moment Mephistopheles Within the bowels of these elementsWhere we are tortured and remain foreverHell hath no limits nor is circumscribedIn one self place for where we are is hellAnd where hell is must we ever beAnd to conclude when all the world dissolvesAnd every creature shall be purifiedAll places shall be hell that is not heaven
