I am in search of someone who is familiar with Shakespeare and renaissance era plays this one in particular ( Dr Faustus) who can write me a 1-2 page essay answering the following questions With citations referring to the actual play:
Faustus has achieved “all learning,” but he knows old age as well as learning: why would a man who realistically know his age and how quickly life passes sell his soul for 24 more years of life?
What knowledge could be worth the quick passing of time for a man who knows how precious time is?
Consider one of the comedy scenes in the play: what specific purpose does it serve for the play in general?
What purpose does this character, the “Old Man,” serve in the play or to attempt to get Faustus to repent? What is the difference between the nameless character and the “good angel” in the psychomachia? Isn’t he redundant?
Marriage is a “sacrament” so Faustus can’t have a wife; however, what about the other sacraments of the Church? Why is only this one singled out as prohibited?
