Critically acclaimed as Christopher Marlowe’s greatest work, Dr. Faustus boldly and imaginatively explores the age-old question: What profits a man if he gains the whole world, yet loses his own soul?

Using both broad humor and deadly seriousness in this daring work, Marlowe addresses the essence of the human soul. Investigating the liability of knowledge, the interplay of free will and fate, and the perversion of power, Faustus’s story has as much relevance to us today as it did to audiences in the sixteenth century.
