    Faust for the Masses

    While it is easy for the beauty of Goethe's writing to be lost in heavy-handed translation, Randall Jarrell brings Faust vibrantly into the Twenty-first century. By far, the best translation I have read. Jarrell captures the beauty of the German text and makes it even sing in English.
