Auf die niederlandische Fassung des Faustspiels ist in Deutschland von W. Creizenach, in Holland von J.A. Worp aufmerksam gemacht worden. Wenn trotzdem das wieht~ge Denkmal die ihm zukommende Beachtung noch nieht gefunden hat, so kann das nur an der zwiefachen Unzugang lichkeit liegen, die ihm bisher anhaftete. Denn einmal ist der Druck so selten, dass nur Wenige von dem Stuck selbst Kenntnis nehmen konnten; dann aber waren auch diese Wenigen in der Beurteilung des Findlings dadurch behindert, dass seine Herkunft in volliges Dunkel gehil. llt waf. Dem ersten Ubelstande soli vorliegender Textabdruck abhelfen; der andre jedoch war nicht mit einem Male zu uberwinden. Was in einem ersten Anlaufe dem Dunkel abzuringen war, ist hier zusammengestellt, und zwar, da es den Rahmen einer lesbaren Einleitung gesprengt hatte, als Beilage. Fur die Leser, die sich nieht in die Einzelheiten zu vertiefen wunschen, sind deren Resultate yom kurz zusammengefasst. Wieviel noch zu geschehen hat, ist leieht ersiehtlieh. Abgesehen von der ganz unzulanglichen Aus grabung der aIten Haager Biihne, fehlt noch eine eingehende Untersuchung uber die Schaffensweise Rijndorps und Floris Groen's; und auch der Versuch, dem hollandischen StUcke seine Stellung in der Entwicklungsgeschiehte des Volksschauspiels anzuweisen, ist gewiss nieht erschOpfend. Wenn ich dennoch, auf die Gefahr hin fur voreilig gehalten zu werden, meine Arbeit abschliesse, so mage der Wunsch das kostbare Material tunlichst bald sieher zu stellen und den Mitarbeitenden zuganglich zu machen, fur eine giltige Entschuldigung gehalten werden

Faust is the protagonist of a classic German legend. He is a scholar who is highly successful yet dissatisfied with his life, so he makes a pact with the Devil, exchanging his soul for unlimited knowledge and worldly pleasures. The Faust legend has been the basis for many literary, artistic, cinematic, and musical works that have reinterpreted it through the ages. Faust and the adjective Faustian imply a situation in which an ambitious person surrenders moral integrity in order to achieve power and success for a delimited term. The Faust of early books - as well as the ballads, dramas, movies, and puppet-plays which grew out of them - is irrevocably damned because he prefers human to divine knowledge; "he laid the Holy Scriptures behind the door and under the bench, refused to be called doctor of Theology, but preferred to be styled doctor of Medicine". Plays and comic puppet theatre loosely based on this legend were popular throughout Germany in the 16th century, often reducing Faust and Mephistopheles to figures of vulgar fun. The story was popularised in England by Christopher Marlowe, who gave it a classic treatment in his play, The Tragical History of Doctor Faustus. In Goethe's reworking of the story two hundred years later, Faust becomes a dissatisfied intellectual who yearns for "more than earthly meat and drink" in his life. - Amazon (summary for a later edition of this title)
