Doctor Faustus Act 4, Scene 3

By Christopher Marlowe

Act 4, Scene 3

  • Benvolio, Martino, and Frederick meet up again, having been dragged through the mud by Faustus's devils.
  • And they all now have horns on their heads. Great. How in the world are they supposed to hide horns?
  • Benvolio has finally learned his lesson; if they attempt revenge on Faustus, he'll probably just add donkey ears to accompany their horns.
  • Nope, their only option now is to hang out at a castle in the woods, hoping that their horns might go away with time. Like… acne?
