Faust and Mephistopheles are still in the mountains, but in a section peopled by demonic creatures, one with a rosary and a monk's hood but obviously not a monk. Snakes and other crawling creatures abound at their feet. Suddenly Faust sees the shade of Marguerite, held aloft by her hair and arms by winged monkey-like creatures. M. tells him to stop looking at her, and reminds him of the legend of Medusa. Faust mourns at Marguerite's appearance. (Virginia K. Anderson 01/21/94)
