Loosely connected with Part One and the German legend of Faust, Part Two 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 recent translation, specially commissioned for The World's Classics series, has all the virtues of previous classic translations of Faust, and ne of their shortcomings. Cast in rhymed verse, following the original, 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.

Reviews about Faust: Part Two (Oxford World's Classics) (Pt. 2) (7):
I have always hated Faust II. It seems like I've put it down more times than I've picked it up. The writing style is overtly florid and there are moments in the text where I honestly could just not figure what was going on. Obscure references to Classical and Teutonic Mythology always went over my head - and I honestly hate using guides. It made reading the play feel more like a slog or a chore than anything. Apparently I'm not alone - it's one of the most ignored and infrequently taught works of Weimar Classicism.

I still think the work is overrated and at times, pretentious, but parts of it are stunningly beautiful. The able translation and scholarship of the introduction and copious notes make the play more accessible. Luke has really done a commendable job on a difficult text. I think footnotes would've been preferable to endnotes as I hate incessantly flipping back and forth. Also, the corresponding German text on the opposing page (like what Signet did with Faust I) would've been nice. It's good to get a feeling for Goethe's actual language - it really is quite beautiful. Something still gets lost in translation even though Luke is much more poetic than many other translators. Also, the mythology guide in the back is a great idea.

It's certainly still not a book for the Oprah's book club crowd as it's still a difficult book, but lit buffs who've been turned off to Faust II should give this edition another shot. Even though it's not perfect (no facing text or footnotes), this is the best translation/edition of Faust II I've ever seen. Luke should be commended.

Highly Recommended for the literature buff. Recommended for the scholar, perhaps in conjunction with an edition with facing text.
The translation is extremely well done. The introduction is very insightful without spoiling the content of the book. I was very much moved by the translator's descriptions of Goethe's inner world and, by placing it in a historical context, it was not a bit boring, but very interesting. I love the style of translation, which was very creative, poetic, lyrical, and fluent. I read Part Two of Faust when I was in high school, but it is so refreshing to read it again at 65 with this new translation. Thank you very much.
I enjoyed this classic with a clear understanding of the evil temptations in the world versus the beauty of remorseful penance gaining the glory of heaven! I was also fascinated with the perfection of poetry!
David Luke's translation and very valuable commentary gives real insight into the evolution of Part 2, and its relationship to Part 1, which was published much earlier. While giving due weight to Goethe's genius, Luke has open eyes, and never falls into the trap of being obsequious. I felt that I came away from reading Luke's translation with much greater insight into both the greatness and the baffling aspects of this incredible work.
Faust part 2 was a good book. I had to read part 1 for my lit class and we were supposed to read sections from part 2. I decided to read the whole thing and made the right choice. It really brought the story of Faust together at the end.
It is Goethe's philosophy of life that I was attracted. Because I thought that it penetrates into the story deeply. I am very interested in knowing whether Goethe believed the soul and a spiritual world. Faust is love with the beautiful woman of Helena in the ancient Greece. Thus Foust let Mephistopheles show in ancient Greece. In other words it is a spiritual world. Otherwise it is the world of the fantasy. Faust meets the animal that the face is a person, and the body is a horse. His name is called Chiron. It is said that he has given Helena a ride on his horseback. So Faust has a ride in his horseback.
The scene which comes across Chiron. 【On the earth I hear a drumming As of hurried hoof-beats coming. Far off I see Good luck approaching me. Can this already be My wondorous destny? It is a horseman; I can tell That he is bold and wise as well The steed he rides is gleaming white... I recognize him - I am right- Philyra's great and famous son! Stop, Chiron, stop! I have to speak to you....    】
Last words of the Faust story is very splendid. All that must disappear is but a parable. This way of thinking resemles Oriental Buddhology.
Fantastic! Part One was incredible, and Part Two is not disappointing me so far!
Makes you love the devil!
