The story of Fausts Alptraum is based on the famous Goethe novel. Elisabeth Faust attends her father’s funeral and discovers that she has been left the old house. In an effort to escape the house, she is guided by a black cat, but she cannot find the way out. Meanwhile, a purple-robed demon asks her to stay.
Throughout the novel, Faust is tempted to kill Valentin’s mother to keep his sister from dying. But when he realizes that he’s been impregnating her sister, he challenges Faust to a duel. But Mephistopheles helps Faust and he dies. Meanwhile, Gretchen becomes insane, murdering her newborn child, and is ultimately executed for her crimes. Faust’s Alptraum is a metaphor for awakening from a withdrawn personality. However, it doesn’t explain why Valentin dislikes Marguerite.
