Publisher's Summary

Faust by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, is a poem, translated by Bayard Taylor, which tells the beautiful and emotional story of a man who has seen and done it all. However, despite all of his learning and education, his life still feels empty and unaccomplished. He believes wholeheartedly that there is something else out there. Faust, having exhausted all other fields of study, turns to magic for fulfillment. He summons the devil and makes a pact - that if the devil can show him something rewarding and fulfilling, he will give the devil his soul. This recording includes part I of the poem, where it concludes with Faust trying to fulfill his need for love through a woman named Gretchen, but things end up taking a tragic turn.

Terribly Read

The narrator fails completely in expressing the correct intonation which is necessary for a complete comprehension of the work. It is a droning up/down intonation which emphasises nothing and leaves you wondering whether the narrator even understood what he was reading! I wish I had listened to more of the sample before purchasing.
