The restless hero, still advised by Mephistopheles, visits classical Greece in search of Helen of Troy. At death, he is carried up into unknown regions, still in pursuit of the eternal feminine. David Luke won the European Poetry Translation Prize in 1989 for his translation of "Faust: Part One".

Faust Summary

Faust: Pt. 2 by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Loosely connected with "Faust: Part One" and the German legend of Faust, this book 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. David Luke's translation of "Faust: Part One" won the European Poetry Translation Prize in 1989. Here he again imitates the varied verse-forms of the original, and provides a readable translation. Other works by David Luke includes "Goethe: Selected Verse" and "Goethe: Conversations and Encounters".
