Jew of Malta (78 Edition)by Christopher J. Marlowe
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
The Jew of Malta is a formative and brilliant play which has come to hold an increasingly important position in the Marlowe canon. This edition is based on the only surviving text, the 1633 quarto, which has been carefully examined and is shown to be more authentic and reliable than most earlier scholars were prepared to allow. The fullest available account of the sources of the play is given, with discussion of Marlowes knowledge of Mediterranean history, and consideration of Elizabethan Machiavellianism. The plays theatrical vitality is illuminated by the suggestions about its original staging in Bawcutts fascinating appendix.
One of the best-known works by the hugely influential English Renaissance dramatist Christopher Marlowe. The Introduction discusses the significance of this brilliant and major work, with detailed commentary provided for meanings of difficult words, lines, and references.
