<q>A metrical version of it into English was licensed by <person>Aylmer, Bishop of London</person>, before the end of the year. In 1588 there was a rimed version of it into German, also a translation into low German, and a new edition of the original with some slight changes. In 1689 there appeared a version of the first German Faust book into, French, by <person>Victor Palma Cayet</person>. The English prose version was made from the second edition of the original,
that of 1588, and is undated, but probably was made at once. There was a revised edition of it in 1592. In 1592 there was a Dutch translation from the second German edition. This gives the time of the carrying off of Faustus by the devil as the night between the twenty-third and twenty-fourth of October, 1538. The English version also gives 1538 as the year, and it is a date, as we have seen, consistent with trustworthy references to his actual life. <persfn>Marlowe's</persfn> play (' The Tragical History of Doctor Faustus ') was probably written in 1588, soon after the original story had found its way to England. He treated the legend as a poet, bringing out with all his power its central thought -- man in the pride of knowledge turning from his God.</q> <qau>(Morley, Eng. Writers, IX. 254.)</qau><br/
<br/
This play was brought to <country>Germany</country> about the beginning of the 17th century, and, after passing through various developments on the stage, finally became a puppet-play, which is still in existence. <persfn>Lessing</persfn> wrote parts of two versions of the story. <persfn>M<uum/ller</persfn>, the painter, published two fragments of his dramatized life of Faust in 1778. <persfn>Goethe's</persfn> tragedy (which see) was not published till 1808. <persfn>Klinger</persfn> published a romance "Faust's Leben, Thaten und H<oum/llenfahrt" (1791: Borrow translated it in 1826). <persfn>Klingemann</persfn> published a tragedy on the subject (1815), <persfn>Heine</persfn> a ballet "Der Doctor Faust, ein Tanzpoem" (1851), and Lenau an epic "Faust" (1836). <person>W.
