Rereading Christopher Marlowe's "Doctor Faustus"

"Dr. Faustus" keeps coming back.

Christopher Marlowe's play, I mean, not Johann Georg Faust.

J. G. Faust lived five centuries back. Give or take a bit. Extracting his biography from folk legends, chapbooks and assorted other retellings? I'll leave that for someone else.

I haven't read or discussed "Faustus," since 2012. So I'll be rereading the play, looking what I wrote then, thinking about it and sharing the results. Together with whatever else comes to mind as I go along....
