9 editions published between 1988 and 2002 in English and German and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The power and magic of the Faust story, the man who, in a pact with the Devil, trades his soul in return for a period of total knowledge and absolute power, is one of the most potent of all European myths.

He reshaped the perpetually fascinating legend, probing the nature and process of human striving and questioning the assumed divisions between the forces of good and evil. His Faust has become a landmark in world literature. Robert David MacDonald's transl

Set in rural Spain at the turn of this century, the scene is a cloistered household managed by a newly widowed mother of five daughters.
