La presente edición, una versión de Aliocha Coll, Andrés Ehrenhaus y Andreu Jaume, reúne los angeles obra completa de Christopher Marlowe formada por las dos partes de Tamerlán el grande, El judío de Malta y Eduardo II, que sirvieron como fuente de inspiración para El mercader de Venecia y Ricardo II de Shakespeare y La trágica historia del health care provider Faustus, considerada una de las grandes obras de l. a. literatura common. A estos dramas se suman Dido, reina de Cartago y La masacre de París, así como el poema largo Hero y Leandro y El pastor apasionado a su amor, traducidas por primera vez al castellano.

«Tanta fuerza y virtud hay en amorosa mirada.

Amar y odiar están fuera de nuestros poderes,

pues nuestra voluntad se somete al destino.»
