Description

Dr. Faust was written during the period of Humanism and Renaissance, with an everlasting value throughout history. It describes the never ceasing desire of the human soul and mind to try to lurk for things beyond the grasp of the human ratio. The author, Christopher Marlowe gave the seal of eternity to this book, by characterizing his main character with all the possible wishes that one can dream of. That is why Faust has got the PhD on law, medicine, theology and logics. Further on he met Mephistopheles, the main devil that reminds him of the seven deadly sins trying to change his mind in order to make him aware of the consequences awaiting for him. But, our main character continuous to be even more stubborn in his requests, thus he makes the pact for 26 years with the devil being aware of the fact that he will never be brought back his own soul. Unfortunately we meet these kind of people every day, with enormous wishes, ideas, needs, style of life, communication with others, with pathological needs to give the impression of being the best. Being categorical on their needs and requests, what is even worse moving and communicating within the circles full of people like themselves, makes them extremely dangerous. But the good has always fought the evil, and the good always prevails. Faust just before dying asks to see Helen of Troy, but it is too late!

Keywords:
