Dr Faustus, first published in 1604 long after Christopher Marlowe had died (in 1593) and then published in an expanded version in 1616, has long fascinated readers and scholars alike as one of the great puzzles in Renaissance English drama. Marlowe himself was highly controversial in his own day, and remains so today, as a daringly heterodox writer. The so-called A-text of 1604 is very short, with missing and misplaced scenes. Some passages are clearly not by Marlowe, but by some other dramatist commissioned by the theatre entrepreneur Philip Henslowe to supplement Marlowe's incomparable tragic writing with some comic horseplay. The B-text adds a considerable amount of material from the Faustbook, padding out the story with more raucous comedy to satisfy audience longings for more magical stunts. This edition uniquely presents the two texts in facing pages, making the reader aware of the changing tastes of audiences, the stage history of the play, and of just how intricate 'editing' a play can be. With a concise and illuminating introduction, and relevant notes and images, this Revels Student Edition of the 'A' and 'B' texts of Dr Faustus will prove to be an enthralling document, and an excellent edition for student and theatre-goer alike.

The Cambridge Companion to Christopher Marlowe, first published in 2004, provides a full introduction to one of the great pioneers of both the Elizabethan stage and modern English poetry. It recalls that Marlowe was an inventor of the English history play (Edward II) and of Ovidian narrative verse (Hero and Leander), as well as being author of such masterpieces of tragedy and lyric as Doctor Faustus and 'The Passionate Shepherd to his Love'. Sixteen leading scholars provide accessible and authoritative chapters on Marlowe's life, texts, style, politics, religion, and classicism. The volume also considers his literary and patronage relationships and his representations of sexuality and gender and of geography and identity; his presence in modern film and theatre; and finally his influence on subsequent writers. The Companion includes a chronology of Marlowe's life, a note on reference works, and a reading list for each chapter.

Die Möwe ist ein Drama von Anton Tschechow aus dem Jahre 1895. Tschechows Stück spielt auf dem Land im zaristischen Russland der Jahrhundertwende (19./20. Jahrhundert). In schrecklicher Langeweile öden die Gäste auf einem Landsitz einander an: Sie gehen sich mit kleinen Sticheleien auf die Nerven und machen sich so das Leben zur Hölle. Der Sohn einer Schauspielerin, Konstantin Gavrilovič Treplev, möchte Schriftsteller werden und hat ein kleines Theaterstück geschrieben, welches am Abend auf einer improvisierten Bühne den Gästen vorgespielt werden soll. Die Hauptrolle spielt dabei seine Geliebte und Muse Nina. Treplev leidet jedoch unter der ständigen Nörgelei seiner Mutter, die sein schriftstellerisches Talent und sein ganzes Leben in Frage stellt. Außerdem hat sie einen Freund, Boris Alekseevič Trigorin, der ebenfalls und bereits sehr erfolgreich Schriftsteller ist. Diesen Trigorin führt sie immer wieder an, wenn sie versucht, Treplevs Selbstvertrauen in sich und seine Arbeit zu schwächen. Bei der Aufführung von Treplevs Stück kommt es schließlich zum Eklat, Mutter und Sohn geraten in Streit. Mehr und mehr zeigt sich, dass Nina sich zu Trigorin hingezogen fühlt...

Woher kommt das Bose? Wie kommt es, dass wir Boses tun? Diese Fragen haben Paul Ricoeur (1913-2005) - den Philosophen und Theologen, der sich selbst nie als solchen bezeichnet hat - seit seinen fruhesten Arbeiten begleitet. Der vorliegende Essay, entstanden aus einem Referat, das Ricoeur 1985 an der Theologischen Fakultat Lausanne gehalten hat, kann stellvertretend fur seine Beschaftigung mit diesen Fragen stehen. Angesichts dessen, was das 20. Jahrhundert an Bosem hervorgebracht hat, beleuchtet Ricoeur hier in einer exemplarischen Tiefe die verschiedenen religiosen, mythologischen und philosophischen Diskurse uber das Bose. Er zeigt, wie die traditionelle Theodizee, aber auch wie Kant, Hegel oder Barth versucht haben, das Problem, das die Existenz des Bosen bedeutet, zu losen. Ricoeur selbst pladiert fur eine Weisheit, die auf die (An-)Klage verzichtet. Paul Ricoeur, 1913-2005, franzosischer Philosoph, war zuletzt Professor an der Universitat Paris-Nanterre und Lehrstuhlnachfolger von Paul Tillich an der University of Chicago. Neben existenz- und geschichtsphilosophischen Forschungen widmete er sich intensiv dem Problem der Sprache.
