One of the more extraordinary inclusions in the Shakespeare Notebooks in this extract from a play entitled Master Faustus. On the face of it, this seems to be either an early draft or a reworking of the play Doctor Faustus - which was written, of course, by Shakespeare's contemporary Christopher Marlowe. Or was it? Did Shakespeare include in his Notebooks material actually written by Mawlowe, or is this proof that Marlowe himself derived his own work from a previous text by Shakespeare?
