    Hi everyone,

    I've been set an essay on Faustus with this title:

    "Making close reference to the language, action and context of 'Doctor Faustus', examine ways in which an individual's struggle to assert and maintain a sense of self is presented."

    Can anyone help me out? So far all I've been able to talk about is Faustus' study defining him, his references to philosophical and political figures and his use of classical imagery - but I've only got a paragraph and a quarter!
