Dr Faustus, first published in 1604 long after Christopher Marlowe had died (in 1593) and then published in an expanded version in 1616, has long fascinated readers and scholars alike as one of the great puzzles in Renaissance English drama. Marlowe himself was highly controversial in his own day, and remains so today, as a daringly heterodox writer. The so-called A-text of 1604 is very short, with missing and misplaced scenes. Some passages are clearly not by Marlowe, but by some other dramatist commissioned by the theatre entrepreneur Philip Henslowe to supplement Marlowe's incomparable tragic writing with some comic horseplay. The B-text adds a considerable amount of material from the Faustbook, padding out the story with more raucous comedy to satisfy audience longings for more magical stunts. This edition uniquely presents the two texts in facing pages, making the reader aware of the changing tastes of audiences, the stage history of the play, and of just how intricate 'editing' a play can be. With a concise and illuminating introduction, and relevant notes and images, this Revels Student Edition of the 'A' and 'B' texts of Dr Faustus will prove to be an enthralling document, and an excellent edition for student and theatre-goer alike.

The Cambridge Companion to Christopher Marlowe, first published in 2004, provides a full introduction to one of the great pioneers of both the Elizabethan stage and modern English poetry. It recalls that Marlowe was an inventor of the English history play (Edward II) and of Ovidian narrative verse (Hero and Leander), as well as being author of such masterpieces of tragedy and lyric as Doctor Faustus and 'The Passionate Shepherd to his Love'. Sixteen leading scholars provide accessible and authoritative chapters on Marlowe's life, texts, style, politics, religion, and classicism. The volume also considers his literary and patronage relationships and his representations of sexuality and gender and of geography and identity; his presence in modern film and theatre; and finally his influence on subsequent writers. The Companion includes a chronology of Marlowe's life, a note on reference works, and a reading list for each chapter.

This is the first study for some time which explores the whole range of Marlowe's writing. Plays such as Doctor Faustus, Edward the Second, The Jew of Malta, and Tamburlaine continue to challenge and startle modern readers as much as they did the Elizabethan world. Written with clarity and without obfuscating jargon, this book is an ideal introduction to one of the most exciting and innovative writers in English.

The Feminist Porn Book, Band 1 vereint zum ersten Mal Schriften von FeministInnen aus der Erotikbranche und Forschung feministischer Pornowissenschaftler. Das Buch geht nicht nur der Frage nach, wie FeministInnen Pornographie verstehen, sondern auch wie FeministInnen Pornographie "machen" - also in einer der lukrativsten und wachsenden Industriezweige der Welt Regie führen oder als Darsteller, Produzenten und Konsumenten agieren. Mit Originalbeiträgen von Susie Bright, Candida Royalle, Betty Dodson, Nina Hartley, Buck Angel und anderen aktualisiert The Feminist Porn Book, Band 1 die Debatten der Pornokriege in den 1980er-Jahren, welche die Frauenbewegung tief gespalten haben, und stellt die Pornografie als eine Form des Ausdrucks und der Berufstätigkeit dar, in der auch Frauen und andere Minderheiten Macht und Lust produzieren.
