FAUST AND GRETCHEN DYING OUT.  As one scholar very insightfully remarks, educated men in present-day Germany resemble a combination of Mephistopheles and Wagner, but certainly not Faust, whom their grandfathers (in their youth at least) felt rumbling within them.  So (to continue the idea), Gretchens do not suit them for two reasons.  And because they are no longer desired, it seems that they are dying out.
