Format: Paperback
I do not feel this matches Marlowe's "Faustus," "Massacre At Paris," "Dido Queen of Carthage," or "Edward II." But it does have some memorable features. At first, Barabas is a sympathetic character, but like many of Marlowe's characters, he goes too far and becomes detestable. Barabas' daughter Abigail is a striking figure. She initially feels sorry for her father but later sees what he has become and falls victim to her father's wickedness. Her death as a Christain in 3.6 is memorable. Ithamore is convincing as a villain who knows no honor. Ferneze is fine as the hero who eventually restores order. It's not Marlowe's best play, but it is still worth some interest.

HASH(0x9c0ae0b4) out of 5 stars Infinite riches in a little play Oct. 12 2006
By Buffy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Ok, so perhaps not infinite, but lots. Marlowe's plays are all a bit strange in their own way. The Jew of Malta is sort of like a really raw take on the issues in the Merchant of Venice (i.e. no sweet love story here). But Marlowe's Barabas gets to enjoy being bad a lot more than Shylock does, and the character is amazingly capable of perhaps not earning the reader's sympathy but extracting her complicity instead. There's some great language in this play and some spectacular misanthropy. The revels editions are always a good bet; they have enough scholarly apparatus to be of significant help and are well-edited and well laid-out on the page. This one is very thin and portable, and so it can feel like a rip-off for 9 bucks. However, the quality of the critical help here is far greater than in the Everyman collected edition of Marlowe.
HASH(0x9c0ae738) out of 5 stars paperback not same edition as hardback May 2 2013
By Bundy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The Roma Gill hardback edition has a fine introduction surveying Marlowe's life as it connects to the play, previous editions, detailed notes which do much to bring the play alive, illustrations including maps and a playbill, index & biblography.

Just be aware that the paperback version has a different editor, and may not have the same range of scholarly material.

I had to rate it for the review to be used--would have preferred to leave the stars open.
