Goethe: Faust, Part I. A new English translation by Eugene L. Stelzig (2019)

Finally, a splendid poetic translation by a poet into contemporary English that captures the full range of tone and style from the sublime to the profane of this transcendent masterpiece. I've always wanted to read this book and now, thanks to Eugene L. Stelzig (Distinguished University Professor @ SUNY Geneseo emeritus), I can.

Full disclosure: Stelzig is a friend of mine.
