MARLOWE: The Plays

CHRISTOPHER MARLOWE    Book Number: 33870    Product format: Paperback

If Shakespeare had died at the age Marlowe died, there would have been no question that Marlowe would have been the leading figure in English Renaissance drama. This edition of all his plays shows why. The plays give us a clear picture of Marlowe as a radical theatrical poet of great linguistic and dramatic daring, whose characters constantly strive to break out of the social, religious, and rhetorical bonds within which they are confined. Accused during his lifetime of blasphemy and homosexuality, Marlowe still has the power to challenge our assumptions about conventional morality through his innovative theatricality. By placing less known plays such as The Massacre at Paris and Dido Queen of Carthage alongside the acknowledged masterpieces Edward II and Dr Faustus, this edition gives a full picture of Marlowe's distinctive and provocative talent. 546pp. Paperback.
