Question Description

Doctor Faustus

After reading Doctor Faustus by Christopher Marlowe, write a literary analysis essay focusing on these three questions:

1. Faustus was a glutton for knowledge… how is this a bad thing? How did it lead to his demise? Cite evidence from the text to support your claims.

2. From the play (Do NOT merely copy this entire passage into your essay. Cite specific evidence from the text to support your claims, as always):

Why, this is hell, nor am I out of it:
Think'st thou that I, that saw the face of God,
And tasted the eternal joys of heaven,
Am not tormented with ten thousand hells,
In being depriv'd of everlasting bliss?
O, Faustus, leave these frivolous demands,
Which strike a terror to my fainting soul!

Analyze how Mephostophilis defines Hell…
• What causes his “terror”?
• How does his sin of blasphemy compare to Faustus’ sin of blasphemy
(Hint: Heaven, “’Twas made for man”)

3. In comparing the characters Faustus and Mephostophilis, which one is more deserving of empathy from the reader (in regards to their suffering/torment)? Cite evidence from the text to support your claims.
