Most widely held works by Christopher Marlowe
Edward II; [a play] by Christopher Marlowe( Book )
499 editions published between 1594 and 2015 in 8 languages and held by 5,928 libraries worldwide
"Depicting with shocking openness the sexual and political violence of its central characters' fates, Edward the Second broke new dramatic ground in English theatre. The play charts the tragic rise and fall of the medieval English monarch Edward the Second, his favourite Piers Gaveston, and their ambitious opponents Queen Isabella and Mortimer Jr., and is an important cultural, as well as dramatic, document of the early modern period. This modernized and fully annotated Broadview Edition is prefaced by a critical but student-oriented introduction and followed by ample appendix material, including extended selections from Marlowe's historical sources, texts bearing on the play's complex sexual and political dynamics, and excerpts from contemporary poet Michael Drayton's epic rendition of Edward the Second's reign."--Page 4 of cover

Hero and Leander by Christopher Marlowe( Book )
198 editions published between 1598 and 2011 in English and German and held by 1,516 libraries worldwide
Marlowe's poem relates the Greek legend of Hero and Leander, youths living in cities on opposite sides of the Hellespont. Hero is a priestess or devotee of Venus in Sestos. At a festival in honor of her deity, Venus and Adonis, she is seen by Leander, a youth from Abydos on the opposite side of the Hellespont. Leander falls in love with her, and she reciprocates. Both young people are described as having more than human beauty. Leander is described as so attractive that even men find him beautiful. The homoerotic undertones of Leander's beauty are a foreshadowing of a future event in the poem. The edition read here includes the continuation by George Chapman

The complete plays by Christopher Marlowe( Book )
30 editions published between 1963 and 2004 in English and Japanese and held by 1,145 libraries worldwide
"Christopher Marlowe - a possible spy with a reputation for atheism who was murdered in mysterious circumstances - courted danger throughout his life. A sense of the dark forces operating in social and political relationships underlies his work. In Dr. Faustus, a man of great intellect and even greater ambition craves knowledge, and is prepared to sell his soul to the Devil to achieve it. Tamburlaine attempts to satisfy his desire for greatness through his domination over an ever-growing empire, while Edward II upsets the delicate balance of power in the land and plants the seed of his own murder. All the plays here show Marlowe's fascination with the tension between weak and strong, sacred and profane."--Jacket
