Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This combines annotated and modernized versions of Marlowe's 1604 text, plus the 1592 English translation of an earlier German text on which Marlowe based his play. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Studies in English Literature 48.2 (Spring 2008) - Peter G. Platt
"This edition is absolutely essential for any serious student or teacher of this perpetually intriguing and vexing play."
Paul Yachnin McGill University
"Michael Keefer's revised edition of Marlowe's Doctor Faustus is now all the more an indispensable text for students, teachers, and scholars of early modern English drama. It combines immense learning with perfect clarity and accessibility. It gives us a solidly reconceived text and also a brilliant historical introduction that fills each line of this strange and moving play with the sounds of a world in intellectual and religious crisis."
