The Witch's Kitchen - Faust, Mephistopheles And The Monkies
A large caldron hangs over the fire on a low hearth; various figures appear in
the vapour rising from it. A Female Monkey sits beside the caldron to skim it,
and watch that it does not boil over. The Male Monkey with the young ones
is seated near, warming himself. The walls and ceiling are adorned with the
strangest articles of witch - furniture.
This senseless, juggling witchcraft I detest! Dost promise that in this foul nest
Of madness, I shall be restored? Must I seek counsel from an ancient dame?
