Check Your Smile – The tragedy’s third part

A picture story by Claus Worenski and Silke Weinsheimer based on excerpts
from Johann Wolfgang v. Goethes FAUST (I + II).

Excerpt left picture:

No bliss satisfied him, no enjoyment,
And so he tried to catch at shifting forms:
The last, the worst, the emptiest of moments,
He wished to hold at last in his arms.

Faust II, verse 11587 – 11590

Excerpt right picture:

I like to hear the Old Man’s words, from time to time,
And take care, when I’m with him, not to spew.
It’s very nice when such a great Gentleman,
Chats with the devil, in ways so human, too!

Faust I, verse 349 – 353
