Goethe’s Margaret on Mephistopheles:

Goethe’s Margaret on Mephistopheles:

Margaret
I’ve long been grieved
To see you in such company.

Faust
Why, who?

Margaret

That man who hangs round you so,
I hate him in my innermost soul:
Nothing in all my life has ever
Given my heart such pain, no, never,
As his repulsive face has done.
