Doctor Faustus was first published in 1604, eleven years after Marlowes death and at least twelve years after the first work of the play. No Elizabethan play outside the Shakespeare canon has raised more joust than Doctor Faustus. There is no agreement concerning the nature of the text and the accompaniment of composition and the centrality of the Faust legend in the memoir of the Western world precludes any definitive agreement on the interpretation of the play 1 Contents 1 work 2 Text o2. 1 The two versions o2. 2 Comic scenes 3 Sources 4 expression 5 Synopsis o5. 1 Faustus learns necromancy o5. 2 The accordance with Lucifer o5. 3 Wasting his skills o5. 4 Damnation or salvation o5. 5 The Calvinist/anti-Calvinist controversy 6 Quotations 7 Themes and motifs 8 Mephistophilis 9 Adaptations 10 Critical history 11 earn overly 12 Notes 13 References 14 External links edit P erformance The Admirals Men performed Doctor Faustus twenty-five clock in the three years between October 1594 and October 1597. On 22 November 1602, the Diary of Philip Henslowe recorded a ? 4 payment to Samuel Rowley and William Bird for additions to the play, which suggests a revival shortly after that date. 2 The powerful effect of the early works is indicated by the legends that quickly accrued around them.In Histriomastix, his 1632 polemic against the drama, William Prynne records the tale that actual devils once appeared on the stage during a performance of Faustus, to the big(p) amazement of both the actors and spectators. Some pot were allegedly driven mad, distracted with that fearful sight. John Aubrey recorded a link legend, that Edward Alleyn, lead actor of The Admirals Men, devoted his later years to charitcapable endeavors, like the founding of Dulwich College, in direct response to this incident. 3 edit TextThe play may have been entered into the Stati champion rs enter on 18 December 1592though the records are confused, and appear to indicate a conflict over the rights to the play. A succeeding Stationers Register entry, dated 7 January 1601, assigns the play to the bookseller doubting doubting Thomas Bushnell, the publisher of the 1604 first edition. Bushnell transferred his rights to the play to John Wright on 13 September 1610. 4 edit The two versions Two versions of the play exist 1. The 1604 quarto, printed by Valentine Simmes for Thomas Law just abouttimes termed the A text.The title varlet attri andes the play to Ch. Marl. . A second gear edition (A2) in 1609, printed by George Eld for John Wright, is merely a reprint of the 1604 text. The text is short for an English Renaissance play, only 1485 lines long. 2. The 1616 quarto, published by John Wright, the enlarged and altered text sometimes called the B text. This second text was reprinted in 1619, 1620, 1624, 1631, and as late as 1663. The 1616 version omits 36 lines but adds 676 new lines, making it roughly one third longer than the 1604 version.Among the lines dual-lane by both versions, there are some small but significant changes in wording for example, Never too late, if Faustus can rue in the 1604 text becomes Never too late, if Faustus will repent in the 1616 text, a change that offers a very different possibility for Faustuss hope and repentance. A major change between texts A and B is the name of the devil summoned by Faustus. Text A states the name is generally Mephastophilis, while the version of text B commonly states Mephostophilis. 5 The name of the devil is in each case a reference to Mephistopheles in Faustbuch, the source work, which appeared in English translation in nigh 1588. 67 The relationship between the texts is uncertain and many modern editions print both. As an Elizabethan playwright, Marlowe had nonhing to do with the publication and had no control over the play in performance, so it was possible for scenes to be droppe d or shortened, or for new scenes to be added, so that the resulting publications may be modified versions of the original script.The 1604 version is believed by intimately scholars to be wetr to the play as originally performed in Marlowes lifetime, and the 1616 version to be a posthumous adaptation by opposite hands. However, some disagree, seeing the 1604 version as an abbreviation and the 1616 version as Marlowes original fuller version. edit Comic scenes In the past, it was assumed that the funny scenes were additions by other writers. However, most scholars today consider the comic interludes, whoever wrote them, an integral offset of the play. 89 Their tone shows the change in Faustuss ambitions, suggesting Marlowe did oversee the composition of them. citation trained The clown is seen as the archetype for comic relief. citation needed edit Sources Doctor Faustus is based on an older tale it is believed to be the first dramatization of the Faust legend. 6 Some scholars1 0 believe that Marlowe developed the story from a popular 1592 translation, commonly called The English Faust Book. 11 There is thought to have been an earlier, lost, German edition of 1587, which itself may have been influenced by even earlier, equally unpreserved pamphlets in Latin, such as those that belike inspired Jacob Bidermanns treatment of the damnation of the doctor of Paris, Cenodoxus (1602).Several soothsayers or necromancers of the late fifteenth century adopted the name Faustus, a reference to the Latin for favoured or gracious typical was Georgius Faustus Helmstetensis, calling himself astrologer and chiromancer, who was expelled from the town of Ingolstadt for such practices. Subsequent commentators have identified this individual as the prototypical Faustus of the legend. 12 Whatever the inspiration, the development of Marlowes play is very faithful to the Faust Book especially in the way it mixes comedy with tragedy. citation needed However, Marlowe also introdu ced some changes to make it more original. Here, he made three principal(prenominal) additions in the play Faustuss soliloquy in the Act 1 on the vanity of human science Good and Bad Angels substitution of Seven mischievous Sins for a pageant of Devils He also emphasized his intellectual aspirations and curiosity and minimized the vices in the character of Faustus to lend a Renaissance aura to the story. edit Structure The play is in blank verse and prose in thirteen scenes (1604) or twenty scenes (1616).Blank verse is largely reserved for the main scenes while prose is used in the comic scenes. Modern texts divide the play into five acts act 5 being the shortest. As in many Elizabethan plays, there is a let out that does not interact with the other characters but rather provides an introduction and conclusion to the play and gives an introduction to the events that have unfolded at the beginning of some acts. Along with history and language style, scholars have critiqued and ana lyzed the structure of Doctor Faustus and its effects on the play as a whole. Leonard H.Frey wrote a document entitled In the possibility and Close of Doctor Faustus, which mainly center ones on Faustuss opening and closing soliloquies. He stresses the importance of the soliloquies in the play, saying the soliloquy, perhaps more than any other dramatic device, involved the audience in an imaginative concern with the happenings on stage. 13 By having Doctor Faustus deliver these soliloquies at the beginning and end of the play, the focus is drawn to his inner thoughts and feelings about succumbing to the devil. The soliloquies have parallel concepts.In the introductory soliloquy, Faustus begins by pondering the fate of his life and what he wants his career to be. He ends his soliloquy with the consequence and decision to give his soul to the devil. Similarly in the closing soliloquy, Faustus begins pondering, and finally comes to terms with the fate he created for himself. Frey als o explains The whole pattern of this final soliloquy is thus a grim parody of the opening one, where decision is reached after, not prior to, the survey. 14 edit Synopsis edit Faustus learns necromancy As a prologue, the Chorus tells us what type of play Doctor Faustus is.It is not about war and courtly love, but about Faustus, who was born of lower class parents. This can be seen as a departure from the medieval tradition Faustus holds a lower status than kings and saints, but his story is dormant worth telling. It gives an introduction to his wisdom and abilities, most notably in academia, in which he excels so tremendously that he is awarded a doctorate. During this opening, we also get our first clue to the source of Faustuss downfall. Faustuss tale is likened to that of Icarus, who flew too close to the sun and fell to his death when the sun melted his waxen wings.This is indeed a hint to Faustuss end as well as bringing our heed to the idea of hubris (excessive pride) which is represented in the Icarus story. Faustus comments that he has reached the end of every subject he has studied. He appreciates Logic as being a tool for competition Medicine as being unvalued unless it allowed raising the dead and everlastingity Law as being upstanding and above him Divinity as useless because he feels that all humans commit sin, and thus to have sins punishable by death complicates the logic of Divinity. He dismisses it as What article of faith call you this?Que sera, sera (What will be, shall be). He calls upon his servant Wagner to bring forth Valdes and Cornelius, two famous magicians. The Good Angel and the Bad Angel dispense their own perspective of his interest in Satan. though Faustus is momentarily dissuaded, proclaiming How am I glutted with conceit of this? , he is apparently won over by the possibilities Magic offers to him. Valdes declares that if Faustus devotes himself to Magic, he must vow not to study any involvement else and points out that gr eat things are indeed possible with someone of Faustuss standing.Faustuss absence is noted by two scholars who are less accomplished than Faustus himself. They communicate that Wagner reveal Faustuss present location, a request which Wagner haughtily denies. The two scholars worry about Faustus falling deep into the art of Magic and head to inform the King. Faustus bring up a devil, in the presence of Lucifer and other devils although Faustus is unaware of it. After creating a magic circle and speaking an incantation in which he revokes his baptism, Faustus sees a devil named Mephistophilis appear before him.Faustus is unable to tolerate the hideous looks of the devil and commands it to change its appearance. Faustus, in seeing the obedience of the devil (for changing form), takes pride in his skill. He tries to bind the devil to his service but is unable to because Mephistophilis already serves Lucifer, the prince of devils. Mephistophilis also reveals that it was not Faustuss p ower that summoned him but rather that if anyone abjures the scriptures it results in the Devil approaching to claim their soul.Mephistophilis introduces the history of Lucifer and the other devils while indirectly telling Faustus that hell has no circumference and is more of a state of mind than a physical location. Faustus inquiries into the nature of hell lead to Mephistophilis saying Oh, Faustus, leave these frivolous demands, which strikes a terror to my fainting soul. edit The obligation with Lucifer Using Mephistophilis as a messenger, Faustus strikes a deal with Lucifer he is to be allotted twenty-four years of life on Earth, during which time he will have Mephistophilis as his personal servant.At the end he will give his soul over to Lucifer as payment and spend the rest of time as one damned to Hell. This deal is to be sealed in Faustuss own blood. After cutting his arm, the wound is divinely healed and the Latin words Homo, fuge (Flee, man ) thus appear upon it. Despi te the dramatic nature of this divine intervention, Faustus disregards the inscription with the assertion that he is already damned by his actions thus far and therefore left(a) with no place to which he could flee. Mephistophilis brings coals to break the wound open again, and thus Faustus is able to take his oath that was written in his own blood. edit Wasting his skills Faustus begins by asking Mephistophilis a series of science-related questions. However, the devil seems to be quite evasive and finishes with a Latin phrase, Per inoequalem motum respectu totius (through unequal motion with respect to the whole thing). This sentence has not the slightest scientific value, thus giving the impression that Mephistophilis is untrustworthy. Two angels, one good and one bad, appear to Faustus the good angel urges him to repent and revoke his oath to Lucifer.This is the largest fault of Faustus throughout the play he is blind to his own salvation. Though he is told initially by Mephisto philis to leave these frivolous demands, Faustus remains imbed on his souls damnation. Lucifer brings to Faustus the personification of the seven deadly sins. Faustus fails to see them as warnings and ignores them. From this point until the end of the play, Faustus does nothing worthwhile, having begun his pact with the attitude that he would be able to do anything. Faustus appears to scholars and warns them that he is damned and will not be long on the earth.He gives a speech about how he is damned and eventually seems to repent for his deeds. Mephistophilis comes to collect his soul, and we are told that he exits back to hell with him. edit Damnation or salvation The text leaves Faustuss final confrontation with Mephistophilis offstage, and his final fate obvious. The scene pursuance begins with Faustuss friends discovering his clothes strewn about the stage from this they conclude that Faustus was damned. However, his friends decide to give him a final party, a religious ceremo ny that hints at salvation.The discovery of the clothes is a scene present only in the later B text of the play in the earlier version of the play devils carry Faustus off the stage. 15 edit The Calvinist/anti-Calvinist controversy The theological implications of Doctor Faustus have been the subject of considerable debate throughout the last century. Among the most complicated points of contention is whether the play supports or challenges the Calvinist doctrine of absolute predestination, which dominated the lectures and writings of many English scholars in the latter half of the sixteenth century.According to Calvin, predestination meant that divinity fudge, acting of his own free will, elects some people to be saved and others to be damned thus, the individual has no control over his own ultimate fate. This doctrine was the source of great controversy because it was seen by the so-called anti-Calvinists to limit mans free will in regard to faith and salvation, and to present a dilemma in terms of theodicy. At the time Doctor Faustus was performed, this doctrine was on the rise in England, and under the direction of Puritan theologians at Cambridge and Oxford had come to be considered the orthodox position of the Church of England. 16 Nevertheless, it remained the source of nimble and, at times, heated debate between Calvinist scholars, such as William Whitaker and William Perkins, and anti-Calvinists, such as William Barrett and Peter Baro. 17 The dispute between these Cambridge intellectuals had quite nearly reached its zenith by the time Marlowe was a student there in the 1580s, and likely would have influenced him deeply, as it did many of his fellow students. 18 Concerning the fate of Faustus, the Calvinist concludes that his damnation was inevitable.His rejection of God and subsequent inability to repent are taken as evidence that he never really belonged to the elect, but rather had been predestined from the very beginning for reprobation. In his knobe Points of Christian Religion, Theodore Beza, the successor to John Calvin, describes the category of sinner into which Faustus would most likely have been cast To conclude, they which are most miserable of all, those climb a class higher, that their fall might be more grievous for they are raised so high by some gift of grace, that they are little go with some taste of he heavenly gift so that for the time they seem to have received the seed But this is plain, that the spirit of adoption, which we have verbalise to be only proper unto them which are never cast forth, but are written in the secret of Gods people, is never communicated to them, for were they of the elect they should remain still with the elect. All these therefore (because of necessity, and tho willingly, as they which are under the slavery of sin, harvesting to their vomit, and fall away from faith) are plucked up by the roots, to be cast into the fire. 19 For the Calvinist, Faustus represents the worst k ind of sinner, having tasted the heavenly gift and rejected it. His damnation is justified and deserved because he was never truly adopted among the elect. According to this view, the play freakstrates Calvins three-tiered concept of causation, in which the damnation of Faustus is first willed by God, then by Satan, and finally, by himself. 20 As Calvin himself explains it in his Institutes of Christian Religion We see therefore that it is no absurdity, that one self act be ascribed to God, to Satan, and to man but the diversity in the end and manner of doing, causeth that therein appeareth the justice of God to be without fault, and also the wickedness of Satan and man, bewrayeth itself to their reproach. 21 The anti-Calvinist view, however, sustains such thinking repugnant, and prefers to interpret Doctor Faustus as a criticism of such doctrines.One of the greatest critics of Calvinism in Marlowes day was Peter Baro, who argued that such teachings fostered despair among believer s, rather than repentance among sinners. He claimed, in fact, that Calvinism created a theodical dilemma What shall we say then? That this question so long debated of the Philosophers, most wise men, and yet undetermined, cannot even of Divines, and men endued with heavenly wisdom, be discussed and decided? And that God hath in this case laid a crosse upon learned men, wherein they might perpetually torment themselves? I cannot so think. 22 Baro recognized the threat of despair which faced the Protestant church if it did not come to an agreement of how to understand the fundamentals. For him, the Calvinists were overcomplicating the issues of faith and repentance, and thereby causing great and unnecessary confusion among struggling believers. Faustus himself confesses a similar sentiment regarding predestination The reward of sin is death. Thats hard. If we say that we have no sin, We deceive ourselves, and theres no justness in us. why then belike we must sin, And so consequent ly die.Ay, we must die an everlasting death. What doctrine call you this? Che sera, sera, What will be, shall be? Divinity, sayonara 23 Ultimately, however, the theology of Marlowe and the text of Doctor Faustus remain far too ambiguous for any kind of conclusive interpretation. edit Quotations Faustus includes a well-known speech addressed to the summoned creep of Helen of Troy, in Act V, scene I. The following is from the Gutenberg project e-text of the 1604 quarto (with footnotes removed). Faustus Was this the face that launchd a thousand ships, And burnt the topless towers of IliumSweet Helen, make me immortal with a kiss. kisses her Her lips suck forth my soul see, where it flies Come, Helen, come, give me my soul again. Here will I dwell, for heaven is in these lips, And all is dross that is not Helena. I will be Paris, and for love of thee, Instead of Troy, shall Wertenberg be sackd And I will combat with weak Menelaus, And wear thy colours on my plumed lead Yea, I will wound Achilles in the heel, And then return to Helen for a kiss. O, thou art fairer than the evening air Clad in the beauty of a thousand stars Brighter art thou than flaming JupiterWhen he appeard to hapless Semele More lovely than the monarch of the sky In wanton Arethusas azurd arms And none but thou shalt be my paramour Excerpts from this speech appear in the film Shakespeare in Love and the Star Trek episode The Squire of Gothos it also served as inspiration for the title of Volume 1 of the popular Age of Bronze comic book. Another well-known quote comes after Faustus asks Mephistophilis how he is out of Hell, to which Mephistophilis replies Why this is hell, nor am I out of it. Thinkst thou that I, who saw the face of God,And tasted the eternal joys of heaven, Am not tormented with ten thousand hells In being strip of everlasting bliss? This quote comes from a translation of Saint John Chrysostom, and implies that Mephistophilis has both a deep knowledge of God and a desire to return to heaven. edit Themes and motifs One theme in Doctor Faustus is sin. Throughout the play, Faustus is continuously making wrong choices. His first sin was greed. Faustus began his downfall by making a pact with the devil. Doctor Faustus is a German scholar who is well known for his accomplishments.He grows sick of the limitations on human knowledge, which leads him to his interest with magic. 24 Faustus summons a demon, Mephistophilis, ordering him to go to Lucifer with the offer of Faustuss soul in return for twenty-four years of servitude from Mephistophilis. At the news of acceptance from Lucifer, Faustus begins his years filled with sinful nature. Faustus feeds sin with his need for power, praise, and trickery. 25 He becomes absorbed in the way people look up to him, believing him to be a sort of hero. In the end, Faustus realizes his mistake in believing power will bring him happiness.At the end of his twenty-four years, Faustus is filled with fear and he becomes rem orseful for his past actions, yet this comes too late. When fellow scholars find Faustus the next morning, he is torn limb from limb, with his soul carried off to hell. In terms of historical context, a major thematic idea is that related to knowledge and the quest for it. With Enlightenment thinkers demonstrating the extent to which the sciences and rational speculation could inform human knowledge of the cosmos and other pressing mysteries of the age, Marlowe presents the idea of hubris which undamentally relates to the search for knowledge in a religious age. Marlowe also draws significant attention to feelings experienced both by himself and other thinkers of his time the unsatisfying nature of the answers found as part of this quest and the impossibility of learning everything in a lifetime as brief as that of a human. Satanism and death are also predominant themes. Marlowe sets the story in Wittenburg, Germany with Faustus selling his soul to the devil and declaring his servi tude to Satan, Mephistophilis I am a servant to great Lucipher and may not follow thee without his leave.No more than he commands we must perform (p 13 line 39-41). Marlowe shows throughout the play that his vow to forever be a servant of Satan negatively affects his life and how had he known what he was getting into, then he would never have made a deal with the devil. Magic is also a motif that plays a major role in Dr. Faustus. Faustuss downfall began with his love of knowledge, which leads for his need to use magic. Faustus loves the praise that he gets when people view him as a sensory faculty, which supports his need to have special powers. 26 Faustus enjoys playing tricks on people by using his powers, and even goes so far as to use his powers on a dragon. He summons demons with magic, and later brings Helen of Troy to comfort him in his final hours. The use of magic is a show of Faustuss demoralization. He no longer wants to be a mere mortal he wants to be as powerful as th e devil himself. 27 One of the most apparent themes in Doctor Faustus is the battle between good and evil. At the beginning of the play, Faustus finds himself torn between good and evil, knowing the distinction and consequences of the two, but overwhelmed by his desire for economic pleasures.Faustuss desire for mortal satisfaction is personified through the seven deadly sins who all speak to him and tempt him. Nicholas Kiessling explains how Faustuss sins brings about his own damnation, saying Faustuss indulgence in sensual diversions, for, once being committed to the pact with Satan, Faustus partakes of the sop of sensuality to blot out his fears of impending damnation28 Another instance of Faustuss battle between good and evil is shown through the good and evil angels which try to influence his decisions and behavior.Kiessling says, Although Faustus does not heed the plea, Marlowe very evidently implies that the peril for redemption still exists. 29 Although Faustus recognizes the consequences of choosing to listen to the evil spirit over the good spirit, he cannot resist the temptations of the devil and the worldly and mortal pleasures he offers. edit Mephistophilis Mephistophilis is a demon which Faustus conjures up while first using his magical powers. Readers initially feel sympathy for the demon when he attempts to dissuade Faustus from giving his soul to Lucifer.Mephistophilis gives Faustus a verbal description of hell and the continuous horrors it possesses. He wants Faustus to know what he is getting himself into before going through with the plan. Thinkst thou that I who saw the face of God And tasted the eternal joy of heaven Am not tormented with ten thousand hells In being deprived of everlasting bliss? O Faustus, leave these frivolous demands Which strikes a terror to my fainting soul 30 Sadly, his attempts fail with Faustus believing that supernatural powers were worth more than a lifetime in hell. Say he (Faustus) abdicate up to him (Luci fer) his soul So he will spare him four and twenty years, Letting him live in all voluptuousness Having thee (Mephistophilis) ever to learn on me (Marlowe 15) Some scholars argue that Mephistophilis depicts the sorrow that comes with separation from God. Mephistophilis is foreshadowing the pain Faustus would have to endure, should he go through with his plan. 31 In this facet, Faustus can be likened to Icarus, whose quenchless ambition was the source of his misery and the cause of his plight. edit AdaptationsThe play was adapted for the screen in 1967 by Richard Burton and Nevill Coghill, who based the film on an Oxford University Dramatic Society production in which Burton asterisked opposite Elizabeth Taylor as Helen of Troy. A stage production at the Greenwich Theatre in London in 2009, which was directed by Elizabeth Freestone and which starred Tim Treolar as Mephistopheles and Gareth Kennerley as Faustus, was filmed for DVD release by Stage on Screen. It played in repertoire with School for Scandal. edit Critical history Doctor Faustus has raised much controversy due to its interaction with the demonic realm. 32 Before Marlowe, there were few authors who ventured into this kind of writing. After his play, other authors began to expand on their views of the spiritual world and how quickly and easily man can fall. 33 edit See also Solamen miseris socios habuisse doloris, line from the play, commonly translated as misery loves company Faust Deal with the Devil edit Notes 1.
