Faust

by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

Fausto

by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

Originalmente publicado en 1970 como Fausto, un fragmento, nada en la literatura alemana igualaba la extraña concepción y el poder concentrado de este drama. En su convicción de que ningún sistema filosófico puede aportar justicia al mundo, que la experiencia humana es irreducible a ninguna serie de conceptos y que la literatura puede reflejar ampliamente la ambigüedad de la vida, Goethe invita con esta obra a una comparación con los grandes filósofos como Nietzche o Kafka. Fausto se convirtió en una obsesión para Goethe, estuvo trabajando en esta obra por más de 60 años, terminándola apenas unos meses antes de morir. Goethe plantea un Mefistófeles cuyo carácter demoníaco reside exclusivamente en la no aceptación del dogma de lo establecido. Es una criatura que reflexiona en base a lo que observa, lo que le convierte en un maestro de lo que podríamos denominar "filosofía natural". Es una obra compleja y muy rica que soporta distintos acercamientos y esto se ha probado, ya que de esta historia han salido óperas, obras teatrales, comedias musicales y distintos experimentos teatrales modernos.
