There is so much to this question, I'm not sure where to begin. Faust is a romantic hero that represents the insatiable human thirst for more of everything. Faust actually becomes a willing participant in the metaphysical. Faust asks to become larger than life, to know even more than his numerous degrees have taught him.Faust makes the ultimate bargain representing both the highest ideals of humanity and the lowest failures of humanity. THen there is the style of the play. Check out this link. Make sure you read the first paragraph,
