There's a price?

Faustus: Stay Mephostophilis and tell me what good will my soul do thy lord?

It is unbelieveable that Faustus really expects to obtain all that he desires from Lucifer and Lucifer not to want something in return. I think it shows that Faustus is not as smart as he thinks himself to be.

I think that Faustus knows about the price but doesn't want to think about it. He seems scared when he offered his soul. When he cut his arm and it congealed it could have been a sign not to do it. So he know about it, and knew that his soul would "enlarge his [Lucifer's] kingdom", but he was too busy thinking about the rewards he could recieve.

I agree Sean. I think that there are many parts in the text that shows where Faustus isn't always smart.

Exactly.

You might be right about Faustus knowing the price, but not wanting to think about it. It's human nature though. We always want to manipulate situations so that we get what we want out of them.
