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

396 editions published between 1594 and 2017 in 9 languages and held by 5,678 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 tragical history of Doctor Faustus by Christopher Marlowe( Book )

The Tragical History of Doctor Faustus is Christopher Marlowe's best-known work and one of the most important plays in the English language. It is based on a classic German folk tale in which an unhappy scholar trades his soul to the Devil in exchange for worldly pleasures and unlimited knowledge. If the plot sounds familiar, it is because it has been adapted and reinterpreted countless times in popular culture from around the world. Marlowe was not the first to tell this tale, but his version is believed to be the first dramatization of it. In addition to the text of the play, this volume contains an extensive preface, notes section and glossary that help to highlight Marlowe's creative contributions and the enduring importance of this work

Tamburlaine the Great by Christopher Marlowe( Book )

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

87 editions published between 1963 and 2004 in English and Catalan and held by 1,230 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."

110 editions published between 1598 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 893 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Marlowe's poem relates the Greek legend of Hero and Leander, youths living in cities on opposite sides of the Hellespont. Hero is a priestess or devotee of Venus in Sestos. At a festival in honor of her deity, Venus and Adonis, she is seen by Leander, a youth from Abydos on the opposite side of the Hellespont. Leander falls in love with her, and she reciprocates. Both young people are described as having more than human beauty. Leander is described as so attractive that even men find him beautiful. The homoerotic undertones of Leander's beauty are a foreshadowing of a future event in the poem. The edition read here includes the continuation by George Chapman

Dido, Queen of Carthage, and the massacre at Paris by Christopher Marlowe( Book )

23 editions published between 1968 and 1974 in English and held by 726 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story of Dido Queen of Carthage focuses on the classical figure of Dido, the Queen of Carthage. There are strong homosexual themes in this play. It tells an intense dramatic tale of Dido and her fanatical love for Aeneas (induced by Cupid), Aeneas' betrayal of her and her eventual suicide on his departure for Italy. The playwrights depended upon Books 1, 2, and 4 of the Aeneid of Virgil as their main source. The opening scene, with its emphasis on homosexuality, as an indication of Marlowe's own emotional orientation when he wrote this play. The Massacre at Paris is an Elizabethan play that concerns the Saint Bartholomew's Day Massacre, which took place in Paris in 1572, and the part played by the Duc de Guise in those events
