Faust is the greatest work of the famous German poet, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. The most significant work of the German literary< but also it is one of the greatest works of world literature, on a par with Dante's "Divine Comedy" and Homer's "Odyssey" and "Iliad". Why Faust by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe is praised so loud during last two hundred years? Let's look at this work closer.
Goethe's "Faust" is a human drama, it describes the full scope of God's creation, showing world events between heaven and hell in all its facets. The central problem of the main protagonist is the suffering of the limitations and restrictions of human existence.
In "Faust" there is plenty of Goethe's thoughts about world structure, his personal religion and philosophy views. So Goethe had been always intent on overriding laws to recognize a higher order. He found this not in the pure theory of literal abstraction, but rather he saw it as the fundamental "driving wheels" of nature. He speaks of polarities, contradictions and the need for such a dualism. It is all about activity and exhaustion, day and night, pleasure and pain, creating and destroying, life and death. For him, death is like a life - a true necessity of nature. This is Goethe's "formula of life".
