Christopher Marlowe - Doctor ​Faustus (Penguin Readers)
Doctor ​Faustus is a clever man who is greedy for knowledge and power. After he signs an agreement with the Devil, in his own blood, his new skills are admired around the world. But there are two sides to an agreement with the Devil. There is a price to pay...

Christopher Marlowe - Doctor ​Faustus and Other Plays
Christopher ​Marlowe (1564-1593), a man of extreme passions and a playwright of immense talent, is the most important of Shakespeare's contempories. 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 Dr 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.

Christopher Marlowe - The ​Jew of Malta
The ​spirit of Machiavelli presides over The Jew of Malta, in which the title character relentlessly plots to maintain and extend his political influence and wealth. A paragon of remorseless evil, Barabas befriends and betrays the Turkish invaders and native Maltese alike, incites a duel between the suitors for his daughter's hand, and takes lethal revenge upon a convent of nuns. Both tragedy and farce, this masterpiece of Elizabethan theater reflects the social and political complexities of its age. Christopher Marlowe's dramatic hybrid resonates with racial tension, religious conflict, and political intrigue — all of which abounded in 16th-century England. The playwright, who infused each one of his plays with cynical humor and a dark world view, draws upon stereotypes of Muslim and Christian as well as Jewish characters to cast an ironic perspective on all religious beliefs. The immediate success of The Jew of Malta on the Elizabethan stage is presumed to have influenced Marlowe's colleague, William Shakespeare, to draw upon the same source material for The Merchant of Venice. The character of Barabas is the prototype for the well-known Shylock, and this drama of his villainy remains a satirical gem in its own right.

Christopher Marlowe - The ​Plays
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.

Christopher Marlowe - The ​Tragical History of Doctor Faustus
The ​Tragical History of Doctor Faustus is a play by Christopher Marlowe, based on the Faust story (Faustus is Latin for Faust), in which a man sells his soul to the devil for power and knowledge. On a deeper level, this play shows the decay of a person who chooses material gains (by commanding the devils to suit his desires) over spiritual belief and in doing so, loses his soul. Doctor Faustus was first published in 1604, eleven years after Marlowe's death and at least twelve years after the first performance of the play.

Christopher Marlowe - Doktor ​Faustus tragikus históriája
A ​Doktor Faustus két szövegváltozatban maradt ránk. A két változat eredete, hitelessége és viszonya ma is vitatott kérdés. Az 1604-es, első nyomtatott kiadás mintegy 1500 sorával szemben az 1616-os és az ezt követő kiadások csaknem másfélszer annyi sort tartalmaznak. Ezt a bővülést ma azzal szokás magyarázni, hogy az 1616-os kvartó egy elveszett, teljesebb és autentikusabb kézirat nyomán készült, amelynek az 1604-es kiadás csak kurtított és romlott változata. Ugyanakkor feltételezzük, hogy az új jelenetek (főként a komikus jelenetek) részben William Bird és Samuel Rowley drámaíróktól származnak, akiknek Henslowe színigazgató 1602-ben négy fontot fizetett ki a "Doktor Faustushoz írt toldásokért". A jelen fordítás teljes egészében tartalmazza az 1604-es szöveget, valamint a hosszabb változat értékesebb jeleneteit, részleteit és jobb sormegoldásait. Ezeket a kiegészítéseket a jegyzetben folyamatosan jelezzük. A fordításhoz C. F. Tucker Brooke (1929) és Frederic S. Boas (1932) kritikai kiadásait használtuk. Ezenkívül figyelemmel kísértük a dráma ma már elavult két magyar fordítását is. Londesz Elekét (Arad, 1894) és Rózsa Dezsőét (megjelent a Magyar Shakespeare-tár IX. kötetében 1916-ban). A legtöbb modern kiadástól eltérően, nem kíséreltük meg az eredetileg csak jelenetezett tragédiát a hagyományos öt felvonásra felosztani. Ehelyett a jeleneteket folyamatos számozással láttuk el.
