Series: Faust

Summary :

Loosely connected with Part One and the German legend of Faust, Part Two is a dramatic epic rather than a strictly constructed drama. It is conceived as an act of homage to classical Greek culture and inspired above all by the world of story-telling and myth at the heart of the Greek tradition, as well as owing some of its material to the "Arabian Nights" tales. The restless and ruthless hero, advised by his cynical demon-companion Mephistopheles, visits classical Greece in search of the beautiful Helen of Troy. Returning to modern times, he seeks to crown his career by gaining control of the elements, and at his death is carried up into the unkown regions, still in pursuit of the "Eternal Feminine".
