Doctor Faustus is a classic; its imaginative boldness and vertiginous ironies have fascinated readers and playgoers alike. But the fact that this play exists in two early versions, printed in 1604 and 1616, has posed formidable problems for critics. How much of either version was written by Marlowe, and which is the more authentic? Is the play orthodox or radically interrogative? Michael Keefer’s early work helped to establish the current consensus that the 1604 text was censored and revised; the Keefer edition, praised for its lucid introduction and scholarship, was the first to restore two displaced scenes to their correct place. Most competing editions presume that the 1604 text was printed from authorial manuscript, and that the 1616 text is of little substantive value. But in 2006 Keefer’s fresh analysis of the evidence showed that the 1604 quarto’s Marlovian scenes were printed from a corrupted manuscript, and that the 1616 quarto (though indeed censored and revised) preserves some readings earlier than those of the 1604 text. This edition has been updated and revised. Keefer’s critical introduction reconstructs the ideological contexts that shaped and deformed the play, and the text is accompanied by textual and explanatory notes and excerpts from sources.

"On 30th May 1593 Christopher Marlowe was stabbed to death in a tavern brawl after a dispute about the 'recknynge'. He was 29. His best known play, Doctor Faustus, was probably first performed in 1590 or 1591, but the first extant edition was not to appear until 1604. It was published again in 1616 in an expanded version now thought to have been debased by the extensive commissioned additions of two contemporary hack writers. Almost all subsequent editions have followed the second or 1616 edition, the B-text, or have attempted an inconsistent synthesis of the two. This new edition, however, conforms to the findings of the most recent Marlowe scholarship, and is based upon the shorter 1604 edition, or A-text, which is now generally agreed to be much closer to Marlowe's original draft."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

›Der Erwählte‹ ist eine Neuerzählung der Legende von Papst Gregorius: Gregorius ging aus der Liebe eines Geschwisterpaares hervor und wurde in einem Fässchen dem Meer ausgeliefert. Nach seiner Rettung druch Fischer erhält er eine klösterliche Erziehung und macht sich schließlich auf die Suche nach seinen Eltern. Durch einen Kampf erobert er sich das Herz der Königin, die später seine Gattin wird. Erst nach Jahren stellen sie fest, dass Gregorius seine Mutter geheiratet hat. Er flieht auf einen Felsen im Meer, wo er siebzehn Jahre ohne Nahrung und Schutz vor Sonne und Kälte verbringt. Zwei Römer erlösen ihn aus dieser Buße, und ihre Vision wird Realität: In Rom wird Gregorius zum Papst ernannt. Thomas Mann lernte diese Legende als Student in München bereits 1894 in der Fassung Hartmanns von Aue kennen. Während seiner Arbeit an ›Doktor Faustus‹ (1947) stieß er erneut auf den Stoff und formte daraus »dieses in Gott vergnügte Büchlein«. ›Der Erwählte‹ erschien 1951.

In den späten sechziger Jahren nahm Giorgio Agamben an Martin Heideggers Seminaren im südfranzösischen Le Thor teil. Damals entstand auch sein erstes Buch L’uomo senza contenuto, das 1970 erstmals erschien. Selbstbewußt und radikal stürzt er sich auf klassische Positionen der Ästhetik, er konfrontiert Platon, Kant und Hegel mit Künstlern und Autoren der Klassischen Moderne. In einer Zeit, in der die Kunst nicht länger die Funktion hat, das Wesen der Wirklichkeit zur Erscheinung zu bringen, wird sie zu einer selbstzerstörerischen Kraft, der Künstler, so Agamben, zu einem »Menschen ohne Inhalt«. Agambens erstes Buch liegt nun endlich auch auf Deutsch vor. »Agamben hat die verwaiste Stelle des Meisterdenkers eingenommen.« Die Welt

A Guide to English Literature

At first glance A Guide to English Literature may seem to be no more than a short bibliography of English literature with perhaps rather more extensive--and certainly more outspoken--comments on the principal editions, commentaries, biographies, and critical works than bibliographies usually provide. But it is something more: this guide contains long "inter-chapters" that provide reinterpretations of the principal periods of English literature in the light of modern research, as well as two final sections summarizing in unusual detail the literary criticism that exists in English and recent scholarship in the field. The purpose of this book, then, is to provide the reader with convenient access to a disciplined study of the texts themselves. This guide proposes itself as a new kind of literary history. The conventional history of literature has often tended to become a substitute for the reading of the literature it describes: the better the history, the greater the temptation to substitute it. The present combination of reading lists and inter-chapters cannot be a substitute for anything else. Meaningless as literature in themselves, they nevertheless provide the necessary preliminary information to meaningful reading. Since oddities of arrangement derive from these assumptions, the authors are not arranged alphabetically. Instead there are chronological compartments--with the divisions circa 1500, 1650, and 1800--in which authors succeed each other in the order of their births. This pioneering handbook is primarily a bibliographical laborsaving device. It is meant mostly for students and the general reader in that it stops where original research by the reader is expected to begin. However, the last chapter on literary scholarship is devoted specifically to the research specialist and provides indispensable equipment for the reader. There is also a general section on literary criticism which will be of use to all. F.W. Bateson (1901-1978) was University Lecturer in English Literature at Oxford and a Fellow and Tutor of Corpus Christi College. Founder and editor of the periodical Essays in Criticism, he is also editor of the four-volume Cambridge Bibliography of English Literature and the author of a number of critical studies of English poetry and drama.
