Dr Faustus, first published in 1604 long after Christopher Marlowe had died (in 1593) and then published in an expanded version in 1616, has long fascinated readers and scholars alike as one of the great puzzles in Renaissance English drama. Marlowe himself was highly controversial in his own day, and remains so today, as a daringly heterodox writer. The so-called A-text of 1604 is very short, with missing and misplaced scenes. Some passages are clearly not by Marlowe, but by some other dramatist commissioned by the theatre entrepreneur Philip Henslowe to supplement Marlowe's incomparable tragic writing with some comic horseplay. The B-text adds a considerable amount of material from the Faustbook, padding out the story with more raucous comedy to satisfy audience longings for more magical stunts. This edition uniquely presents the two texts in facing pages, making the reader aware of the changing tastes of audiences, the stage history of the play, and of just how intricate 'editing' a play can be. With a concise and illuminating introduction, and relevant notes and images, this Revels Student Edition of the 'A' and 'B' texts of Dr Faustus will prove to be an enthralling document, and an excellent edition for student and theatre-goer alike.

The Cambridge Companion to Christopher Marlowe, first published in 2004, provides a full introduction to one of the great pioneers of both the Elizabethan stage and modern English poetry. It recalls that Marlowe was an inventor of the English history play (Edward II) and of Ovidian narrative verse (Hero and Leander), as well as being author of such masterpieces of tragedy and lyric as Doctor Faustus and 'The Passionate Shepherd to his Love'. Sixteen leading scholars provide accessible and authoritative chapters on Marlowe's life, texts, style, politics, religion, and classicism. The volume also considers his literary and patronage relationships and his representations of sexuality and gender and of geography and identity; his presence in modern film and theatre; and finally his influence on subsequent writers. The Companion includes a chronology of Marlowe's life, a note on reference works, and a reading list for each chapter.

Shakespeare ist wohl der bekannteste Dramatiker aller Zeiten, doch über sein Leben wissen wir so gut wie nichts. Kein Brief blieb von ihm erhalten, wir kennen nur ein paar dürre Lebensdaten, vereinzelte Schriftsätze aus Prozessen, die er betrieb – und ein überaus nüchternes Testament, in dem er seiner Frau sein zweitbestes Bett vermacht. In seiner hochgelobten Biographie versucht Stephen Greenblatt mit detektivischem Scharfsinn, die Lücken dieser Lebensgeschichte zu füllen und hinter das Geheimnis zu kommen, wie aus einem talentierten Jungen aus einer englischen Kleinstadt der größte Dramatiker aller Zeiten werden konnte, kurz: wie Shakespeare zu Shakespeare wurde.
