Storyboard Text

  • Hamartia
  • Hubris
  • Peripeteia
  • Faustus' lack of faith in the idea of repentance could be seen as his fatal flaw for he opts out of such an obvious gateway to freedom so often. A different interpretation could be his pride (see right).
  • Anagnorisis
  • 'His waxen wings did mount above his reach' - he wants more than he can have and goes to dangerous lengths to fulfil his selfish ambitions of being better than all.
  • Nemesis
  • Faustus' fortune is set out for him all along, so there is no real reversal to occur. Rather, he dismisses the fortune until the last moment (see next box).
  • Catharsis
  • Faustus' realisation comes far too late, at the very end of the play. 'Come not, Lucifer! I'll burn my books'
  • Faustus gets what is coming to him as the consequences to his satanic dabbling find him in the form of eternal damnation to hell.
  • The audience will see Faustus' struggle and failure and through that, learn that it is indeed a path not to be trodden. It will be a cathartic experience to watch his tale.
