In Faust a lot of focus is given to the issues of good versus evil and beautiful versus ugly. Using specific characters and situations discuss how Goethe highlights this dichotomy and specifically how the idea of beautiful versus ugly relates to good versus evil.
While Faust Part II would have been more accessible to the reader of the day, Goethe does still set forth some themes that are pertinent to today's society. Select at least on main theme discussed in Faust and show how it is an apt metaphor for contemporary society today.
Throughout the novel Faust's views of his purpose and striving change drastically; however, Mephistopheles views of his purpose remain somewhat the same. Discuss the dichotomy of how these view differ and how they reflect upon the character that holds them.
