In this book, Jane K. Brown offers an original reading of Goethe's complex masterpiece in the context of European Romanticism.

Looking at the two parts of Faust in sequence, she views the second part as an elaboration of what was implicit in the first, and she clarifies the patterns of thought and organization underlying the play.

In Faust, she argues, Goethe not only situates German culture within the wider European literary tradition, but also demonstrates that all literature is by its nature allusive-that it exists only as part of a tradition.
