So the price of knowledge in Doctor Faustus might seem exaggeratedly steep. His tragically truncated career makes that an unanswerable question. Allegory An allegory is a literary device where abstract concepts are given concrete form as people or objects.

As with Shakespeare, comic scenes such as the repartee between Wagner and the Clown are difficult to understand without notes. But, of course, Faustus does so anyway, making him and Mephistophilis kindred spirits. A Good Angle and an Evil Angel arrive, representing Faustus' choice between Christian conscience and the path to damnation.
