Faust

The Old Bakery in Nutfield

The photograph is of The Old Bakery in Nutfield, Surrey, now somebody’s home.

I recently saw a production of Faust, Part I at bluemeanie’s school.  It was performed in German (possibly modern German, I couldn’t tell) with surtitles.  I have written before about Faust, the enduring story and myth.  The link to the Radio 4 discussion about Faust

tracing his history from a malicious magician playing tricks on innkeepers in the 15th Century, through Marlow and Goethe through to Coleridge and Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein

is still available here. I strongly commend this programme.
