Doctor Faustus is a classic; its imaginative boldness and vertiginous ironies have fascinated readers and playgoers alike. But the fact that this play exists in two early versions, printed in 1604 and 1616, has posed formidable problems for critics. How much of either version was written by Marlowe, and which is the more authentic? Is the play orthodox or radically interrogative? Michael Keefer's early work helped to establish the current consensus that the 1604 text was censored and revised; the first Broadview edition, praised for its lucid introduction and scholarship, was the first to restore two displaced scenes to their correct place. All competing editions presume that the 1604 text was printed from authorial manuscript, and that the 1616 text is of little substantive value. But in 2006 Keefer's fresh analysis of the evidence showed that the 1604 quarto's Marlovian scenes were printed from a corrupted manuscript, and that the 1616 quarto (though indeed censored and revised) preserves some readings earlier than those of the 1604 text. This revised and updated Broadview edition offers the best available text of Doctor Faustus in an attractive hardcover binding. Keefer's critical introduction reconstructs the ideological contexts that shaped and deformed the play, and the text is accompanied by textual and explanatory notes and excerpts from sources

Instead of asserting any alleged rivalry between Marlowe and Shakespeare, Sawyer examines the literary reception of the two when the writers are placed in tandem during critical discourse or artistic production. Focusing on specific examples from the last 400 years, the study begins with Robert Greene’s comments in 1592 and ends with the post-9/11 and 7/7 era. The study not only looks at literary critics and their assessments, but also at playwrights such as Aphra Behn, novelists such as Anthony Burgess, and late twentieth-century movie and theatre directors. The work concludes by showing how the most recent outbreak of Marlowe as Shakespeare’s ghostwriter accelerates due to a climate of conspiracy, including “belief echoes,” which presently permeate our cultural and critical discourse.

What art thou, Faustus, but a man condemned to die? With his famous play Doctor Faustus (1592), Elizabethan dramatist Christopher Marlowe (1564-1593) brilliantly staged the story of a renowned scholar who sells his soul to the Devil in exchange for magical powers. Marlowe's Faustus is the classic character who shuns God's graces and the prospect of heavenly bliss in order to pass his mortal years "in all voluptuousness" - only to suffer harrowing despair at the threshold of eternal damnation. As T. McAlindon shows in this beautifully written and exceptionally well versed study, Marlowe's masterwork so vividly articulates the Christian fear of Hell, the human struggle against earthly temptation, and the longing for God's mercy, that it inspired new Faustus stories by Lessing, Goethe, and Mann, and influenced writers from Shakespeare to Conrad. Marlowe's drama has also taken a significant place in Western popular thought: as McAlindon leads us through its five acts, we see that many now-familiar ideas - the devil-pact signed in blood, the conflicting voices of Good and Bad Angels, God's exile of Lucifer, the treachery of Satan's agent Mephistopheles, and the inexorable ruin of a soul gone astray - were first brought to life in Marlowe's Doctor Faustus. McAlindon delves into the mind of Marlowe - an arrogantly rebellious freethinker who might have been imprisoned for atheism if he hadn't first been killed in a barroom brawl - and explores the playwright's fascination with the ambition, godlessness, and final despair of his hero. Both Marlowe and Faustus, McAlindon reveals, are caught in the turbulent cross-currents of the Reformation: both paid the Medieval price of spiritual terror for living by the Renaissance ideals of humanism and high aspiration. Following McAlindon through Marlowe's rich weave of emotion, poetry, drama, irony, and symbolism, we explore such pivotal scenes as Faustus's first summoning of Mephistopheles, his travels with Mephistopheles through the cosmos and their insult to the Pope, his conjuring of fantastic images to delight the aristocracy and to cheat a common horse-trader, and his magical resurrection of Helen of Troy. Along the way, McAlindon blends new insights with contributions by major critics - from the Romantics to the postmoderns - to consider the play's most powerful questions: Why does Faustus choose necromancy over religion? Could he have been saved? Did Marlowe write his final punishment as a moral lesson or as a human tragedy? The answers, as McAlindon unveils them, enrich not only our appreciation of Marlowe's play but also our understanding of Reformation thought and its legacy over four centuries.
