The difficulty of the "good" doctor

I had a difficult time with this reading. I had to read segments several times, just to get it into my head. I just recently finished a section on Marlowe in British writers, so I guess I should have expected the complex language.

Marlowe's parallelism actually helped me a great deal. The descriptions and comparisons of Faustus to Greek gods and heros allowed me to have a better idea of the doctor. I picture him as arrogant, self-absorbed "nerd." Without being redundant, I see him as the man in the original "Twilight Zone" season one Escape Clause. They both are sneaky characters looking for a good time. I'm hoping the "good doctor" gets it the way Walter does. Ah, sweet irony!
