The practise of necromancy caught my attention when reading through Dr. Faustus. In order to obtain what he desires most in this world—power—Faust makes a deal with the devil and becomes entangled in dark magic. But does someone captured by this magic possess abilities comparable to those of God? Or is it simply a façade? Dark magic, in my opinion, is a distinct thing from power. The fate that awaits fools who think that they are the same thing is their own entirely. In my interpretation of Dr. Faustus, I aimed to capture this tragic fate which awaited the characters Valdes and Cornelius.
