Penguin Classics No. L12; Goethe lived to the age of eighty-two, and we know that the figure of Faust persisted in his thoughts for a period of sixty years, practically the whole of his working life. The First Part of his Faust is his masterpiece. It was begun when Goethe was in his early twenties, and finished, except for a few lines, in 1801, when he was fifty-one. (Part Two did not receive its finishing touches until the poet's eighty-third year; it is a complex work of idealism, removed from the human conflict of conscience and love that the poet gives us in Part One). It is the union of passion and wisdom in Faust , Part One that places Goethe among the master-poets of the world. Size: 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. 197 pages. Spine browned with age.
