Practice the conversation; study the vocabulary; then discuss the questions with a friend in English.

Questions:
1. Do you know anything about Goethe, Mann, or Kafka? Have you read any of their works?
2. Goethe's Faust made a "deal with the devil." Have you ever heard of this idea? What do you think it means?
3. Kafka's character Gregor Samsa becomes a "giant cockroach." What do you think this symbolizes?
