The Complete Works of Christopher Marlowe: Volume I: All Ovids Elegies, Lucans First Booke, Dido Queene of Carthage, Hero and Leander
Part of the Oxford English Texts series
Despite the modern fascination with Marlowe--particularly with his Dr. Faustus--there has been no edition of his works in the original spelling, with full textual apparatus and a detailed commentary.
The Oxford English Texts Complete Works of Christopher Marlowe fills the need for a fully annotated scholarly treatment of the works.
Volume I contains all his translations from classical poetry, comparing the English verse with the Latin and Greek originals.
The editor discusses Marlowe's skill as a translator and his art as a poet, and provides clear explanations of all difficult expressions and obscure allusions.
