A piece of Star Wars Meta.
The text is looking at the usage of tropes and ideas from the classic "Faust"-Tragedy in Lucas' Star Wars movies.
The comparison conducted draws from J.W. Goethe's 1808 theater play "Faust - Eine Tragödie, Erster Teil" ("Faust - A Tragedy, Part One") and F.W. Murnau's 1926 silent movie "Faust - Eine deutsche Volkssage" ("Faust - A German Folktale").
A special focus is put on the practice of scene quotation which George Lucas uses extensively and from a wide range of sources throughout his cinematic works.
