Faust as a state of indebtedness

  • Where: Vaclav Havel Library, Řetězová 7, Prague
  • When: May 29, 2014, 19:00 – 21:00

Reading by writer Vladimír Just.

The story of Faust represents one of the most important European myths and is becoming more topical by the day (which is good news for the myth but, given the point of the Faust story, bad news for us). For the book Professor Vladimír Just has updated his essays from 1994–2013 looking at how the myth has been reworked by important filmmakers, composers, philosophers, writers and painters, from F. W. Murnau to Berg to Václav Havel.
