In the sixteenth-century chapbook (published in 1587), Doctor Faustus makes a pact with the Devil in the form of Mephostophiles. In Goethe’s tragedy from 1808, Faust makes a wager with Mephistopheles, a minion of higher diabolical powers. Through a close reading and analysis of these respective scenes, discuss the main differences between the deeper religious –– specifically Protestant –– message of the chapbook and the newer secular spirit of the Enlightenment as expressed in Goethe’s drama. In other words, to what extent does Goethe’s representative “modern” character of Faust depart from the earlier version propagated during the Reformation? Be sure to support your argument with specific examples from both texts, including key lines and/or verses.
