These Kindle freebies are giving me easy access to many great works By Jeffrey Van Wagoner This is my first time through Goethe's Faust thanks to my Kindle. This version is Part I; Part II was published separately. This is the translation by Bayard Taylor and was originally available in 1871. This edition includes a preface by the translator that I found quite interesting. He explains the translation process and how he was able to get it into rhyming verse similar to the original German.Since I do not read German and this is the only translation I have ever read, it is hard for me to judge the quality of this translation, but I was impressed with how he got the English to fit into the original metres. This is written as a play in poetic form.The story itself is Goethe's version of the Faustian legend. I found that I was able to follow the story quite well, but I did find it useful to read a summary of the plot that clarified several events that are sometimes difficult for me to follow in poetic language.I shall next get my hands on Faust Part II. I highly recommend this Kindle freebie to anyone interested in literature. I can see why this ranks as one of the greatest works in German literature. 1 of 1 people found the following review helpful. God-awful Goethe! By G. Yoshida The worst narration possible. I would not expect this level of reading from my high school students! Quirky inflections, irritating vocal effects, i am going to use this ONE cd as an example of how not to read a text. 1 of 1 people found the following review helpful. Goethe is not for everyone By Amaris Goethe's Faust was written over the span of thirteen years and it is quite apparent. The first half of the novel is quite good and follows Faust through his descent into immoral behavior after having made a deal with the devil's assistant Mephistopheles. It is dramatic and dark. Having read Christopher Marlowe's Faust I was expecting this dark nature to continue. Rather the second half is overly romantic and features troves of mythical creatures and an ending unlike what I would have liked or expected. This is considered a great piece of classic literature but perhaps it is not for everyone. See all 27 customer reviews...
