Overview

Despite the modern fascination with Marlowe—particularly with his Dr. Faustus—there has been no edition of his works in the original spelling, with full textual apparatus and a detailed commentary. The Oxford English Texts Complete Works of Christopher Marlowe fills the need for a fully annotated scholarly treatment of the works. Volume I contains all his translations from classical poetry, comparing the English verse with the Latin and Greek originals. The editor discusses Marlowe's skill as a translator and his art as a poet, and provides clear explanations of all difficult expressions and obscure allusions.
