Doctor Faustus Epilogue – Chorus Summary

  • The Chorus declares that the branch that might have grown straight and achieved great heights is now cut. (That would be Faustus.)
  • They tell the audience to take Faustus's fall as a warning against probing too deep into the dark arts, whose practice is not permitted by the powers that be.
