Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Professor James Lake has done all Marlowe scholars and teachers of Elizabethan and Jacobean drama a great service in once again making available Irving Ribner’s magnificent edition of Marlowe’s Dr. Faustus. Ribner’s edition was the finest of its era (the 1960s) and will find an eager audience in professors who prefer to use individual paperback editions of the plays of Shakespeare and his contemporaries rather than huge, unwieldy anthologies.

Lake’s new introduction traces the history of the Faust legend, places Marlowe’s play in its Renaissance context, and provides a brilliant survey of the fate of Marlowe’s Faustus in production on stage, film, and opera. His range of reference is astounding and extends from Simon Magus to St. Theophilis to Goethe to Friedrich Wilhelm Murnau to Orson Welles to Charlie Daniels (“The Devil Went Down to Georgia”) and even to a Calvin and Hobbes cartoon. His introduction instructs even as it delights.

Professor Samuel Crowl, Ohio University

Marlowe's Dr. Faustus is a text used in a variety

of college and university courses including great

books courses, basic introductory courses in the

history of drama, survey courses in the literature of

the English renaissance, upper-division courses in

Elizabethan and Jacobean drama, senior seminars in the

works of Shakespeare and his contemporaries or in the

history of the Faust legend. Irving Ribner's edition

of Marlowe was the finest of its generation and it

will be most attractive to professors of broad survey

courses in Western Liiterature and major courses in

16th Century drama to have his one-volume edition of

Marlowe's Dr. Faustus once again in print.
