43 editions published between 1995 and 2008 in English and held by 756 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Christopher Marlowe (1564-93), a man of extreme passions and a playwright of immense talent, is the most important of Shakespeare's contemporaries. This edition offers his five major plays, which show the radicalism and vitality of his writing in the few years before his violent death. Tamburlaine Part One and Part Two deal with the rise to world prominence of the great Scythian shepherd-robber; The Jew of Malta is a drama of villainy and revenge; Edward II was to influence Shakespeare's Richard II. Doctor Faustus, perhaps the first drama taken from the medieval legend of a man who sells his soul to the devil, is here in both its A- and its B-text, showing the enormous and fascinating differences between the two. Under the General Editorship of Michael Cordner of the University of York, the texts of the plays have been newly edited and are presented with modernized spelling and punctuation. In addition, there is a scholarly introduction and detailed annotation

Antony and Cleopatra by William Shakespeare( Book )

18 editions published between 1990 and 2000 in English and held by 701 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Antony and Cleopatra has the strangest stage history of any of Shakespeare's major tragedies. The author explains how the play's challenging complexity has at different times inhibited or promoted its success on the stage, and accounts for the remarkable resurgence of performances in the last twenty years. He provides the only detailed, extensive and up-to-date history of the play on stage and screen, in and beyond Britain. His introduction and commentary examine the ways in which cultural factors have shaped the performance of the play, and how actors have tackled the main parts, in particular the exotic eroticism of Cleopatra. In the process he reveals not only the rich plurality of possible readings of the play, but also changing attitudes to Shakespeare

Shakespeare and biography is not a new biography of Shakespeare, but a study of what biographers have said about Shakespeare--from the first formal biography in the early 18th century by Nicholas Rowe, to others who have written recent biographical accounts. The emphasis is on what sorts of issues these biographers have found especially interesting, how contemplation of these issues has changed and grown, and the ways those changes reflect new cultural developments in our world as it continues to reinterpret Shakespeare
