Magic Circle and Celestial Macrocosm: The Structure of Marlowe's Doctor Faustus

This essay, which applied a formalist-structural analysis to Marlowe's play, dates from 1980. It has not previously been published. Except in note 16, where I have added in square brackets a reference to my 2008 edition of Doctor Faustus, and note 21, which is entirely new, the text and notes have not been updated.
