The Works of Christopher Marlowe

The Garner's literary selection is not confined to the works of Shakespeare. We also include an complete electronic edition of the works of Shakespeare's contemporary, Christopher Marlowe (this edition has, in fact, been available in Perseus for some time). The Marlowe materials include all of Marlowe's plays, his two known poetic works, Hero and Leander and The Passionate Shepherd to his Love, his translations of Ovid and Lucan, and the short miscellaneous works attributed to Marlowe, a dedicatory epistle to Mary Countess of Pembroke and the epitaph on Sir Roger Manwood. The edition comprises the extant sixteenth century versions and a variety of later historical collations, all of which may be viewed as complete texts or in side-by-side comparison with other versions. The edition of Doctor Faustus comprises the A text (1604) and B text (1616) as well as the play's major source-text, the English Faust Book.
