Scene Text

Start: Faustus: Now that the gloomy shadow of the earth,/ Longing to view Orion’s drizzling look, / Leaps from th/Antartic world unto the sky / And dims the welkin with her pitchy breath,

End: Faustus: Now that I have obtained what I desire, / I’ll live in speculation of this art / Till Mephastophilis return again.
