Christopher Marlowe's Doctor Faustus


Declared by Swinburne as having 'no parallel in all the range of tragedy', Doctor Faustus is considered Christopher Marlowe's greatest work. This edition of his play gathers together both published versions of The Tragical History Of Doctor Faustus, from the Quarto of 1604, and the Quarto of 1616, each with modernized spelling and full textual notes. Optimized for navigation as an eBook, with a table of contents linked to every section, this edition also features a wealth of contextual sources, such as The English Faust Book, Marlowe's main inspiration for the play, as well as a detailed timeline, a biographical profile, an extensive list of all Marlowe's personal associates, and a collection of all the key primary documents relating to Marlowe's dramatic life and death (e.g., The Privy Council Note To Cambridge Authorities, The Dutch Church Libel, The Baines Note, & much more).
