Even though we
(1) discussed it in detail today during Dramaturgy and the professor
(2) clearly loves it to pieces and
(3) plans on an unflagging discussion of both Goethe and Faust for the length of the class,
I am still kept from reading it by
(1) the sheer unfinishability of the thing (750 pages with the notes: and the notes are important) and the fact that
(2) it is, even with the notes, incredibly, punishingly boring.
I need a boyfriend.
