Edward II Revised

Dramatically compressing the reign of Edward II and enlivening the historical narrative with humour, romance, and horrific violence, Marlowe interrogates how the transgression of accepted codes of behaviour affects even those at the highest level of society. Kept off the stage for almost three hundred years because of its dramatization of explicit homosexual relationships, it has become increasingly popular with modern day readers and performed on stage and film to great acclaim. This student edition contains a completely new introduction by Stephen Guy-Bray, and offers students a useful and lively overview of recent criticism, an updated performance history paying greater attention to Derek Jarman's film, a background on the author and themes, as well as an updated bibliography and a fully annotated version of the playtext.

Doctor Faustus and Other Plays

Author: Christopher Marlowe,David M. Bevington,Eric Rasmussen

Publisher: Oxford University Press, USA

ISBN: 9780192834454

Category: Drama

Page: 503

Christopher Marlowe (1564-1593), a man of extreme passions and a playwright of immense talent, is the most important of Shakespeare's contemporaries. 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.

Quoting Death in Early Modern England

The Poetics of Epitaphs Beyond the Tomb

Author: Scott L. Newstok

Publisher: Palgrave MacMillan


Category: Literary Criticism

Page: 228

View: 7994

"An innovative study of the emergent Renaissance practice of making epitaphic gestures within other English genres. This book argues that the post-Reformation preoccupation with textual remembrance led to a remarkable proliferation of epitaphs beyond the putative tomb. A poetics of quotation uncovers the ways in which writers have recited these texts within new contexts. This book modifies conventional genre studies by detailing the situatedness of quoted text - a compositional habit that became markedly prevalent with the continued expansion of printing and literacy in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries."--BOOK JACKET.
