Product description

Renaissance England's great tragedy of intellectual overreaching is as relevant and unsettling today as it was when first performed. This edition provides newly edited texts of both the 1604 (A-Text) and 1616 (B-Text) versions of the play, with detailed explanatory annotations. Included are a selection from Marlowe's main source, The Damnable Life and Deserved Death of Dr John Faustus, along with contemporary writings on magic and religion. Twenty-five interpretations allow students to enrich their critical understanding of the play. A chronology and selected bibliography are also included.
