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.
