The Jew of Malta, with Related Texts, Hardback Book

The Jew of Malta, with Related Texts Hardback

Edited by Stephen J. Lynch


This edition answers the needs of both beginning and advanced students: It features the text of Marlowe's play with modern spelling and punctuation, glosses and annotations on the page, and a thorough Introduction devoted to the play's historical, cultural, and theological contexts.

In addition, it includes a generous selection of related texts, including excerpts from Machiavelli's The Prince , Gentillet's Anti-Machiavel , and Bacon's The Advancement of Learning .

Its combination of pedagogical acuity and historical craft make Lynch's an excellent edition of Marlowe's play--one that also serves as a fine introduction to Elizabethan drama as a whole.

It moreover offers a convenient window on the reception of Machiavelli in England and the representation of Christmas, Jews, and Turks on the Elizabethan stage.
