Edward II; [a play] by Christopher Marlowe( Book )

416 editions published between 1594 and 2017 in 9 languages and held by 3,787 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this new edition, Charles Forker provides the most complete and detailed edition of Edward II ever published."--BOOK JACKET. "The introduction contains a fresh analysis of the first quarto (including new evidence of its original dating) and a reconsideration of the play's complex relation to the Shakespearean histories that preceded and followed it. Charles Forker offers a fascinating and far-reaching discussion of Marlowe's use of sources, and presents a new argument for the drama's five-act structure. He delves into the conflicting and controversial opinions concerning the genre and sexual politics of the play, and also includes the fullest record of the stage history ever assembled."--BOOK JACKET. "With meticulous scholarship, Forker has collated some forty-six editions (including the important, rare, and usually ignored editions of Broughton and Oxberry in 1818). The appendices provide substantive variants from the Broughton and Oxberry texts as well as generous extracts from the sources. This edition will stand as the definitive scholarly text for Marlowe's most provocative play for years to come."--BOOK JACKET
The plays of Christopher Marlowe by Christopher Marlowe( Book )

125 editions published between 1904 and 2010 in English and held by 1,629 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume collects together many of Marlowe's plays, including one of his least known works, The Massacre at Paris. The play describes the events of the St. Bartholomew's Day Massacre of 1572, in which Protestants were killed in great numbers by Catholic agitators. The original text of the play has been lost, and the version now used is believed to be made up largely of remembrances and transcriptions from several original audience members. Due to this fact, most scholars ignore the play when analyzing Marlowe's canon, but it still reveals something about his creative process and political sympathies. One character, the "English Agent," is believed to be based on Marlowe himself, owing to the fact that he secretly worked as a spy for the English government
Tamburlaine the Great by Christopher Marlowe( Book )

82 editions published between 1597 and 2011 in 5 languages and held by 1,450 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tamburlaine the Great is the name of a play in two parts by Christopher Marlowe. It is loosely based on the life of the Central Asian emperor, Timur 'the lame'. Written in 1587 or 1588, the play is a milestone in Elizabethan public drama; it marks a turning away from the clumsy language and loose plotting of the earlier Tudor dramatists, and a new interest in fresh and vivid language, memorable action, and intellectual complexity. Along with Thomas Kyd's The Spanish Tragedy, it may be considered the first popular success of London's public stage. Marlowe, generally considered the greatest of t
The complete plays by Christopher Marlowe( Book )

108 editions published between 1963 and 2004 in 4 languages and held by 1,264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Christopher Marlowe - a possible spy with a reputation for atheism who was murdered in mysterious circumstances - courted danger throughout his life. A sense of the dark forces operating in social and political relationships underlies his work. In Dr. Faustus, a man of great intellect and even greater ambition craves knowledge, and is prepared to sell his soul to the Devil to achieve it. Tamburlaine attempts to satisfy his desire for greatness through his domination over an ever-growing empire, while Edward II upsets the delicate balance of power in the land and plants the seed of his own murder. All the plays here show Marlowe's fascination with the tension between weak and strong, sacred and profane."--Jacket

Mr. William Shakespeares comedies, histories & tragedies : a facsimile edition by William Shakespeare( Book )

54 editions published between 1887 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 877 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tamburlaine the Great - I and II, Dr Faustus (A Text and B Text) The Jew of Malta, Edward II, The Massacre at Paris, Dido Queen of Carthage. With Introductions by Emma Smith. If Shakespeare had died at the age Marlowe died, there would have been no question that Marlowe was the leading figure in English Renaissance drama. This edition of all his plays shows why. The plays give us a clear picture of Marlowe as a radical theatrical poet of great linguistic and dramatic daring, whose characters constantly strive to break out of the social, religious and rhetorical bonds within which they are confined. Accused during his lifetime of blasphemy and homosexuality, Marlowe still has the power to challenge our assumptions about conventional morality, through his innovative theatricality. By placing less-known plays such as The Massacre at Paris and Dido Queen of Carthage alongside the acknowledged masterpieces Edward II and Dr Faustus, this edition gives a full picture of Marlowe's distinctive and provocative talent

This book offers a comprehensive and accessible introduction to all of the plays of Christopher Marlowe. Marlowe is a playwright whose work taps into the central concerns of his age, many of which are still important to us - religious uncertainty, the clash between Islam and Christianity, the discovery of America, ideas of sexuality and gender identity, and the rôle of the marginalised inidividual in society. The book contains six chapters, each on a specific aspect of Marlowe?s work and its cultural contexts: Marlowe?s life and death; the Marlowe canon; the theatrical contexts and stage histo
