The devils and Mephostophilis in particular, in Christopher Marlowe's play Dr. Faustus are much more complex than those in preceding medieval drama are. Mephostophilis's only

The British being in control of the subcontinent and their sense of superiority over their Indian subjects, would naturally seek to downplay a

In particular, it is in comparing the motifs and designs of
