I Complain Too Much

My complaints about Faust are ill-advised and silly. It's obviously brilliant. It's important that I spent time reading it. It influences everything on the continent that comes after it. I am listening to Mussorgsky's Night on Bald Mountain and all I can think of is Goethe's "Walpurgisnacht."

OK. Back to work.
