Subject: New Electronic Edition of Marlowe
NEW SITE FOR CHRISTOPHER MARLOWE:
Last spring we released an edition of Doctor Faustus that interlinked
the A and the B texts along with the English Faust Book. This month we
would like to announce an electronic edition of the rest of Marlowe's
works. This edition is of interest, in part, because it collates many
earlier editions of the plays: for instance, users may select the 1590
Octavo version of Tamburlaine the Great, Part 1 or view instead
Robinson's 1826 collation. By selecting from the pop-up menu above each
text, viewers may choose between approximately twenty versions of each
of Marlowe's works. We anticipate that every text will be available for
viewing with textual variants within the next couple of weeks.
