Enter Chorus.

Chorus. Not marching now in fields of Thrasimene,

Where Mars did mate the Carthaginians;

Nor sporting in the dalliance of love;

In courts of kings where state is overturn’d;

Nor in the pomp of proud audacious deeds,

Intends our Muse to vaunt his heavenly verse:

Only this, gentlemen, we must perform

The form of Faustus’ fortunes, good or bad:

To patient judgments we appeal for plaud, And speak for Faustus in his infancy.

Now is he born, his parents base of stock, In Germany, within a town call’d Rhodes :

Of riper years, to Wittenberg he went, Whereas his kinsmen chiefly brought him up.

So soon he profits in divinity,

The fruitful plot of scholarism grac’d, That shortly he was grac’d with doctor’s name,

Excelling all whose sweet disputes delight

Faustus? s study.
Faustits discovered.

Faust. Settle thy studies, Faustus, and begin

To sound the depth of that thou wilt profess :

Having commenced, be a divine in show,

Yet level at the end of every art,

And live and die in Aristotle’s works.

Sweet Analytics, ’tis thou hast ravish’d me ! ‘ 3tee Mssirm tst finis lagtces.’

Is, to dispute well, logic’s chiefest end ?

Affords this art no greater miracle ?

Then read no more ; thou hast attain’d that end. 10 A greater subject fitteth Faustus’ wit

Enter Good Angel and Evil Angel.

G. Ang. O, Faustus, lay that damned book aside,

And gaze not on it, lest it tempt thy soul, And heap God’s heavy wrath upon thy head !

Read, read the Scriptures : that is blasphemy.

E. Ang. Go forward, Faustus, in that famous art

Wherein all Nature’s treasure is contain’d :

Be thou on earth as Jove is in the sky, Lord and commander of these elements.

Exeunt Angels.

Faust. How am I glutted with conceit of this !

Shall I make spirits fetch me what I please, 80

Resolve me of all ambiguities,

Perform what desperate enterprise I will ?

I have them fly to India for gold,

Ransack the ocean for orient pearl,

And search all corners of the new-found worl

For pleasant fruits and princely delicates ;

I have them read me strange philosophy,

And tell the secrets of all foreign kings ;

I have them wall all Germany with brass,
