Faustus part 2

Marlowe, Faustus (Finish) -- Drama as Literature (EL 250)

Old Man: “Though thou hast now offended like a man,Do not persever in it like a devil.
Yet, yet, thou hast an amiable soul,
If sin by custom grow not into nature;
Then, Faustus, will repentance come too late"

I feel that this line is telling faustus that it is his last chance to repent. The old man is telling him if he repents he still has a chance.

You've definitely nailed the significance of the line, in terms of plot, but what do you feel this scene adds to the play? What "agenda" are you bringing into the classroom when you choose this passage as your agenda item?
