“…after all, in the beginning was Dostoevsky. From him comes a sickly fevered rhythm of a play, mystical, fatal enchainment between its main characters, from him comes the inevitability of their appearance and disappearance. From him—the unrelenting pull of mutual mental attraction, as if something the characters can’t understand for themselves is delivered by the others. And as such, it goes on, with the same inevitability and harshness. That’s what makes Faust Faustian, and Mephistopheles Mephistophelian.”
