Publisher Comments:

This book gathers all seven of the dramas of Christopher Marlowe, in which the lure of dark forces drives the shifting balances between weak and strong, sacred and profane. Supported by textual notes and featuring modern punctuation and spelling, they include:

  • Dido, Queen of Carthage
  • Tamburlaine the Great, Part One
  • Tamburlaine the Great, Part Two
  • The Jew of Malta
  • Doctor Faustus
  • Edward the Second
  • The Massacre at Paris

With a critical introduction, a chronology of Marlowe’s life, extensive commentary, and a glossary, this will remain the authoritative anthology of Marlowe’s plays for years to come.

  • The texts have been freshly edited based on the earliest printed editions, with modernized punctuation and spelling
  • Each play has headnotes, textual notes, and commentary

I also say I have a one-way ticket to hell. Guess what that does to their panties? They disappear. No demon magic necessary! Sweet.

lukas, April 4, 2008 (view all comments by lukas)
Though often overshadowed by that showboat Shakespeare, Kit Marlowe, despite his small output, is both an influential playwright and a fascinating character. He was, quite possibly, an atheist, a spy, & a homosexual. He was stabbed in the eye in a tavern duel. And he wrote some bombastic (Jonson refered to Marlowe's "mighty line"), bloody, and subversive plays, which are all included in this well annotated collection. "Dr. Faustus" is the most famous, but fans/students of Elizabethan drama will want to read the entire collection. Also see Anthony Burgess's inventive, dazzling novel of Marlowe's life, "A Deadman in Deptford."
