A Review for Doctor Faustus by Christopher Marlowe
Doctor Faustus by Christopher Marlowe is a play about a man who sells his soul. This story may seem similar to Faust by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe at first, but they are different in several ways. The most notable difference is how they are written. Faust is written in a poetic form. Doctor Faustus on the other hand is a play. Doctor Faustus goes through a similar experience to Faust but its the flowing of the play that really sets it apart. This is a play that doesn't try to hide behind too many complicated words or old world language. This is a story of a man in trouble and how he tries to get out of that trouble. For anyone who enjoyed reading Faust or Another Faust(see previous reviews), those people will enjoy this story as well.
