    Faust II explores interesting themes and yes, presents almost all the creatures of Greek mitology, specially the monsters, but in my opinion lacks the vitality of part I. It is mostly allegorical.The feeling I got is that a phantomly Faust travels though several phantom worlds.
    I put one link to the complete Faust (Everyman-Gutemberg) in the thread opened by JR. I guess itīs not the most up to date version, but at first glance I liked the rendering of the verses.

    I have not read much Shakespeare. I think I may read some student guide books so I can understand what he's going on about. Maybe, one day, I'll understand what the fuss is about.

    I have not read Ulysses by James Joyce. I think I will try change that next year, but that does not mean I will either understand it or enjoy it.

    Likewise I have not read To the Lighthouse by Virginia Woolf. I'm sure it's rubbish but it's the only book in the top 10 British books I have not read, and I think it's quite short.

    I have not read War and Peace, but it's over 1000 pages long.

    I have not actually read any D.H. Lawrence.

    There are other books like Infinite Jest I have not read, but until they're over 50 years old at least, there is no snob value lost in that.
    According to Aldous Huxley, D.H. Lawrence once said that Balzac was 'a gigantic dwarf', and in a sense the same is true of Dickens.
    Charles Dickens, by George Orwell
