"Doctor Faustus" end

I wonder when it hit Faustus that he was really destined to spend eternity in hell. I know he understood the deal he struck, but he showed little remorse for actions, until the end. I find it amusing that a play written in the 1500s includes emotions and actions that still occur today. I know I've been in situations where myself, or someone I know, dimisses all help-until the last minute. Like Faustus, the person rejects assistance, but then regrets the decision when it it too late to change the situation.

It also illustrates such foolish pride, how unfortunate.

Good points, Lamb.
