Sadie Sue Shagbottom in Faust
It’s time again for another episode of Shagbottom Theater!
Dog star, Sadie Sue Shagbottom, performs in Faust as the Spirit.
Shagbottom Theater #25
Spirit searching for Faust, just after being conjured:
Mightily you have drawn me to you,
Long, from my sphere, snatched your food,
And now –
You beg me to show myself, you implore,
You wish to hear my voice, and see my face:
The mighty prayer of your soul weighs
With me, I am here! — What wretched terror
Grips you, the Superhuman! Where is your soul’s calling?
Where is the heart that made a world inside, enthralling:
Carried it, nourished it, swollen with joy, so tremulous,
That you too might be a Spirit, one of us?
Where are you, Faust, whose ringing voice
Drew towards me with all your force?
Are you he, who, breathing my breath,
Trembles in all your life’s depths,
A fearful, writhing worm?
