Reflections on acting, strife, and the play Faust by Goethe.

(Pictures by me, and quotes from "Faust, first part" by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Translated by Peter Salm.)

Ode to Joy with some really cool english/german lyrics to follow along with: https://www.youtube.com/w...

Also Ode to Joy, but my favourite video of it - it's awesome: https://youtu.be/kbJcQYVt...

Schiller's poem "Ode to Joy" which are the lyrics to the choral arrangement: https://en.wikipedia.org/...

And last, one of my favourite renditions of the entire 9th symphony, celebration of the fall of the Berlin wall. 10/10 would recommend listening to the whole thing someday: https://youtu.be/IInG5nY_...

Nacht

All the quotes in Italics are lifted directly from the play “Faust” by Goethe, particularly the "Night" soliloquy. Ah, except for "Freude!". That one just comes from the Ode to Joy choral lyrics, Beethoven's 9th Symphony, Schiller's poem. Pretty relevant to Faust, I think.

More info in the description if y'all want to give the play a read or listen to Ode to Joy. I put some nice links in there for you, dear reader. ^-^ Cheers!
