Synopsis

This is an edition of Christopher Marlowe's play Dr Faustus as it was first printed in 1604. This is one of the most celebrated of all Elizabethan plays, famous for its treatment of the damnation of Faustus and his struggles with his divided conscience. It combines spectacular visual effects with sophisticated theological discussion. The edition reproduces the only surviving copy, held in the Bodelian Library, Oxford, in photofacsimile. The introduction offers up-to-date analysis of the authorship, sources, staging and printing of the play. The edition will be invaluable for advanced students and established scholars working on Marlowe, Elizabethan drama generally, demonology, and early modern book production. An edition of the revised text of 1616 will be published by the Malone Society in early 2019.
