Essay Topics

Essay Topic 1

How does Faust's innate skepticism of higher powers help lead to his downfall? How is this related to his agreement to Mephistopheles's bargain? In addition to his doubts about Mephistopheles's power, why does this lead Faust into a troubled relationship with God? How and why does Faust retain this skepticism throughout the play? What does this suggest about his character as a whole? Discuss these questions (though not exclusively) in a brief essay about Faust's skepticism while using strong examples from the text to support these arguments.

How does Faust fit the definition of a tragic hero? What is his hamartia? How do his actions cause the tragedies of this play. Discuss these questions (though not exclusively) in the form of an essay. Compose a clear thesis statement and cite specific examples from the text to support your answers. Be sure to define the terms "tragic hero" and "hamartia," as well as discuss how Faust also subverts the trope of a tragic hero.
