Product Description

Review

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.) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
What a fantastic play this is! Barabas is a wonderfully wicked villain. He murders nuns by putting poison in their porridge, and then says, "How sweet the bells ring now the nuns are all dead." Comparing it with 'The Merchant of Venice' shows that Marlowe's play is far better - it's more fun, the language is more exciting, and there's none of that sentimental hooey. And the play cannot be described as anti-semitic, since Marlowe pokes fun at religions of all kinds; the Christian rulers of Malta are devious Machiavellians, the Fransiscans are randy, and the Muslims are fools. Barabas is no more evil than the others - he just does it with more panache!

This is the first play of Marlowe's that I have read and I like it. I did not do him at school. Easier than Shakespeare and a good comparison when having an argument about whether Shylock in Merchant of Venice is anti semitic. I think both of the plays are above racism and reflect other people's attitdes of the day and not the playrights. Really good edition of the play. Glad I paid a little extra rather than just downloading text for free.

A great read! Barabas' cupidity reaches astounding proportions. This book has murder and violence, which should appeal to contemporary readers. On a deeper level it illustrates how humans overreach and cause their own demise/downfall. Has parallels to Dr. Faustus.
