The Jew of Malta: A Critical Reader Paperback / softback
Edited by Professor Robert A. Logan
Part of the Arden Early Modern Drama Guides series
Christopher Marlowe's drama, The Jew of Malta, has become an increasingly popular source for scholarly scrutiny, staged productions, and, most recently, a filmed version.
The play follows the sometimes tragic, sometimes comic, often outrageous fortunes of its villainous protagonist, the Jew Barabas.
In recent years the play has provoked as much interpretive controversy as any work in the Marlowe canon.
This unique volume is therefore especially timely, providing fresh, varied approaches to the many enigmatic elements of the play.
