Doctor Faustus

Doctor Faustus

by Christopher Marlowe

Doctor Faustus Act 3 – Chorus Summary

  • The Chorus is back, folks, to give us the skinny on what to expect next.
  • They regale us with a tale of Faustus on a journey in which he views the clouds, planets, and stars from a chariot flying above them all. Uh, can we get a ticket on that ride?
  • After traveling around the world in this super awesome chariot (did we mention it's drawn by dragons?), he comes back home.
  • But no sooner is he home than he hops back on one of those dragons for some more exploring. 
  • Finally, he ends up in Rome, where he plans to see its wonders (we've heard the fountains are spectacular, buddy), and chow down with the Pope.
