Description Faust, disillusioned with a life of study, laments the life and love that has passed him by. In vain, he tries to end it, but in frustration, strikes an infernal deal whereby he buys the services of Mephistopheles while on earth in exchange for his soul, which will belong to the Devil after death.
Mephistopheles shows Faust a vision of the beautiful and chaste Marguerite. Through trickery and deception, Faust wins the heart of Marguerite, diverting her from young and honest suitors with gifts and jewels procured as part of his demonic contract.
