Gradesaver has a fantastic study guide for this novel. I have provided the link below. You should be able to find what you need in the section marked "context."

Don't let it kill you......... Dr. Faustus is a fascinating piece. I'm going to see if I can find you a modern day version to help you with the "language." I find that the language is always the biggest barrier with this. Too much to think about.
