Published In: United Kingdom, 01 March 2009
Dr Faustus is the epitome of Renaissance aspiration, striving after knowledge that marked the age in which Marlowe wrote. Faustus envisages a world of power and delight "which stretcheth as far as doth the mind of man' and turns longing eyes on the magic books that will make him 'a mighty god'- and ultimately damn him forever. Dr Faustus is a highly popular text, frequently studied and performed. This student edition uses the A text, widely excepted as the most authentic published edition. Fully revised by leading Renaissance scholar, Ros King, it contains a completely new Introduction containing the latest criticism and stage history and revised commentary and notes. New Mermaids editions offer:* Modernized versions of the play text edited to the highest textual standards* Fully annotated student editions with obscure words explained on each page* Critical, contextual and staging insight
