However, there are key differences in the plot of each version, which demonstrates the intended purpose of each version or, the impact each of them would have on the audience. They are both present when Faust considers the pursuit of magic, they appear again when Faust signs over his life to the Devil, and at the end of the play when Faustus is about dragged to hell. With the Good Angels presence, there are much more opportunities in the play for Faust to repent and choose God over evil. Faustus is relatively straightforward- it serves as a lesson to the audience about the consequences of trying to surpass the limits of human ability.
Comparing A and B texts of Dr. Faustus Posted by momof7cats on January 30, There are a number of differences between the two texts, which to varying extents change the meaning and overall impression of these scenes and the play as a whole.
First, the scenes are completely labeled differently. What takes place in scene 12 in the B text is contained entirely in scene 13 in the A text; nothing in scene 12 of the A text matches the same scene in the B text. Next is the way the scene begins—with a conversation between Lucifer, Mephastophilis, and Beelzebub.
The conversation between Faustus and the three scholars is largely the same in both texts, but I did notice a few key differences.
After the scholars exit, the B text contains several exchanges not found in the A text. The following lines from the latter are especially important in this scene and the play as a whole: Fools that will laugh on earth most weep in hell.
This means that 1 Faustus is not so great, powerful, and knowledgeable as the imagined and 2 his actions were not entirely of his own free will. The endings in both texts vary greatly. The A text is a bit more ambiguous; Faustus is merely carried away by the devils, and no witnesses are offered to confirm his death.Transcript of The Tempest and Doctor Faustus.
