Doctor Faustus (5 of 19)

Publication Date: February 25, 2011

Chapter: English Literature in the Sixteenth Century

Faustus mutters seven lines of mystical gibberish before a devil unceremoniously appears. Seriously, he just kinda shows up. The play cuts straight from the incantation to, "[Enter a DEVIL.]" The abruptness of this stage direction made me laugh for several minutes. It was sad, really.

Anyway, the Doc is kind of douchey to the "devil," and instantly demands that the demon change its shape to something more pleasing. I dunno, but if I was in Faustus' position, I probably would've wet myself if a demon showed up, not start bossing it around.

Author: Christopher Marlowe • Year: 1592 • Info: Wikipedia
