    By Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

    Faust: Part Two

    By Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

    Paperback Save £1.54 = £8.45

    Faust: Part One

    By Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

    Paperback Save £0.74 = £7.25

    David Luke's translation has all the virtues of previous classic translations of Faust, and none of their shortcomings. Cast in rhymed verse, it preserves the essence of Goethe's meaning without sacrifice to archaism or over-modern idiom. It is as near an 'equivalent' rendering of the German as has been achieved.
