This edition is of the best-known play by one of Shakespeare’s chief predecessors and early contemporaries, Christopher Marlowe. The Jew of Malta was enormously influential on Shakespeare when he came to write The Merchant of Venice, and for good reason, since the play explores anti-Semitism and revenge. An introduction discusses the significance of this formative and brilliant play, with detailed commentary provided for meanings of difficult words, lines and references. Distilled from the insight and learning found in the fuller Revels edition but updated and streamlined, this is the most contemporary commentary now available.
