Of English Renaissance dramatists, Christopher Marlowe arguably stands second only to Shakespeare in the minds of students, directors, and theatre-goers. Yet despite this fascination with the man and his works, until the present Oxford English Texts edition there has been no complete edition of the works that not only gives them in their original spelling - with full textual apparatus - but also supplies a detailed commentary. Marlow's Jew of Malta - a very popular play in its day, as entries in Henslowe's Diary testify - ranks as one of the most imaginative creations of Elizabethan drama, having no known antecedents for the main events of the plot, and no known counterpart for its protagonist. Here it is presented in a text derived from the 1633 Quarto, with an apparatus of emendations and a full commentary on sources, allusions, and the meaning of difficult passages.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Fuller ... offers an elegant and precise reading of the play. * Anthony P. Bale, Notes and Queries, Vol.47, No.3, Sept. 00. *
sensitive interpretations ... Fuller's commentary is, likewise, extensive and by far the most capacious in this group of editions. Anthony P. Bale, Notes and Queries, Vol.47, No.3, Sept. 00.
The Massacre at Paris is probably Marlow's most neglected works ... Esche's edition provides the necessary resources in order that the intricacies of the play's history need no longer be an obstacle to is accessibility. * Anthony P. Bale, Notes and Queries, Vol.47, No.3, Sept. 00. *
excellent texts for scholars of Marlowe at all levels, marrying precision and provocative readings together with appurtenant material for further analysis. * Anthony P. Bale, Notes and Queries, Vol.47, No.3, Sept. 00. *
