Summary:
"This Norton Critical Edition of The Jew of Malta is based on Christopher Marlowe's Q 1633, the only authoritative text of the play. The tale follows the story of Barabas, an ambitious Jewish merchant in Maltese, who sets on a spiteful quest for revenge after his fortunes are taken from him. The "Context" in the Norton Critical Edition offers an in-depth look through 16th and 17th century cultural contexts, including Turkish and Jewish identities and Marlowe's role in the theater landscape. "Criticism" explores the play through 19th to 21st century criticism, ranging from the play's performance history to character analysis. A chronology and selected bibliography are also included"-- Provided by publisher.
