David Wootton's Introduction charts Marlowe's brief, meteoric career; the delicate social and political climate in which Doctor Faustus was staged and the vexed question of the religious sensibilities to which it may have catered; the interpretive significance of variations between the "A" and "B" texts; and the shrewd and subversive uses to which Marlowe put the English Faust Book in crafting, according to Wootton, "a drama in which orthodox Christian teaching triumphed, but in which Faustus has all the best lines."
David Wootton is Anniversary Professor of History, University of York.
