The Complete Works of Christopher Marlowe: An Electronic Edition

This scholarly site from the Perseus Project at Tufts University (see the October 17, 1997 Scout Report) features editions of "all of Marlowe's plays, his two known poetic works, Hero and Leander and The Passionate Shepherd to His Love, his translations of Ovid and Lucan, and the short miscellaneous works attributed to Marlowe, a dedicatory epistle to Mary, the Countess of Pembroke and the epitaph on Sir Roger Manwood." But the site does more than simply offer Marlowe's corpus. Interested in "exploit[ing] the flexibility of an electronic medium," the site allows users to lay different editions (including original and modern spelling versions) of Marlowe's plays side-by-side to compare textual variants and, in the case of Doctor Faustus, even various editions of the play's source text, The English Faust Book. One drawback: currently only The English Faust Book is provided with scholarly notes and glosses. For the plays, at least for now, users will have to find other sources to elucidate arcane allusions and antiquated usages.
