Doctor Faustus: Chorus 2 Summary & Analysis

Summary
Analysis
Alone on the stage, Wagner announces that Faustus has ridden in a chariot drawn by dragons through the sky to learn the secrets of astronomy and is now flying around the globe. Wagner guesses that Faustus will go to Rome first.
Faustus continues to gather knowledge far beyond the normal human scope of experience. He is, in a sense, taking the ambitions of a Renaissance individual to their extreme, reaching literally soaring heights.
