Discussion Thread 1

Compare the Faust of Part 1 to that of Part 2. How has Faust changed? What are his aims and goals now? What is he trying to achieve in the selections presented here? Are his motives purely selfish? Can his actions here be seen as leading to redemption?

You may wish to consider what is wrong with Faust at the beginning of the play. Why is he dissatisfied? What happens to his powerful agitation and restlessness over the course of the play?

Cite evidence from the text to support your claims.


Discussion Thread 2

Ghalib’s ghazals may be compared to European Romantic lyric poetry, which invokes themes of mutability, transience, longing, and doubt.

Choose one of Ghalib’s ghazals, and discuss how the theme of ‘transformation’ functions in it.

What kinds of transformations are described? Does the speaker change? Does the addressee change? Who or what are the agents of the changes you have identified?

Cite evidence from the text to support your claims.
