Faust and His Transformations: From Page to Stage to Big Screen

Nicholas Rennie (German)

This course investigates the theme of a human being who wagers it all in order to transform his own life along with the world he inhabits, focusing in particular on the dramatic masterpiece by Goethe. We will also look at how this theme inspired other writers and artists to experiment in their own mediums – from the development of the fledgling medium of movable-type print in the Renaissance, to recent experiments in film.
