either God or Satan: Faustus belongs to the devil, and Job belongs to God. They both have criticism for the masses, but in different ways. Faustus is saying, in a way, that the people are taking their beliefs to literally, and that they do not have to believe everything that they are told to believe. Job is saying that the people are not believing as they should be. Christopher Marlowe?s play Doctor Faustus is about what can happen to a person who becomes greedy. Faustus only wanted more knowledge, but he ended up eternally damned to hell. It is, in effect, a lesson used to scare those who are willing to believe it. Even if it wasn?t written in jest, Marlowe?s play still stands today a lesson in morality for anyone who reads it.
