One of the greatest English playwrights Christopher Marlowe received the scholarly compliment of having long been considered the author of some plays now attributed to Shakespeare Marlowe s remarkable inventiveness and powers of poetic expression enabled him to render his first play i Tamburlaine i the relatively new form of English blank verse establishing the form for later Elizabethan dramatic writing This heroic epic his most ambitious work was also the first genuine English tragedy br Produced around the two part romantic drama derives from the historical figure of Tamerlane a Mongol warrior whose conquests and tyrannical rule extended from the Black Sea to the Upper Ganges In Part I Tamburlaine represents the best and most admirable qualities of the Renaissance man his relentless rise to greatness his ability to defy the odds and his determined pursuit of all life s possibilities The first part concludes with the hero at the zenith of his powers with vivid descriptions of his military victories and the passionate courting of a rival s captive daughter in Part II however Tamburlaine s ambition overrides his better nature and his greed and vanity ultimately lead to his ruin br Ideal for classroom use this volume will also be a welcomed addition to the libraries of anyone fond of English literary classics, The last of Marlowe s great dramas often considered his masterpiece, The spirit of Machiavelli presides over i The Jew of Malta i in which the title character relentlessly plots to maintain and extend his political influence and wealth A paragon of remorseless evil Barabas befriends and betrays the Turkish invaders and native Maltese alike incites a duel between the suitors for his daughter s hand and takes lethal revenge upon a convent of nuns br Both tragedy and farce this masterpiece of Elizabethan theater reflects the social and political complexities of its age Christopher Marlowe s dramatic hybrid resonates with racial tension religious conflict and political intrigue all of which abounded in th century England The playwright who infused each one of his plays with cynical humor and a dark world view draws upon stereotypes of Muslim and Christian as well as Jewish characters to cast an ironic perspective on all religious beliefs br The immediate success of i The Jew of Malta i on the Elizabethan stage is presumed to have influenced Marlowe s colleague William Shakespeare to draw upon the same source material for i The Merchant of Venice i The character of Barabas is the prototype for the well known Shylock and this drama of his villainy remains a satirical gem in its own right br br, One of the most durable myths in Western culture the story of Faust tells of a learned German doctor who sells his soul to the devil in exchange for knowledge and power Early enactments of Faust s damnation were often the raffish fare of clowns and low comedians But the young Elizabethan playwright Christopher Marlowe recognized in the story of Faust s temptation and fall the elements of tragedy br In his epic treatment of the Faust legend Marlowe retains much of the rich phantasmagoria of its origins There are florid visions of an enraged Lucifer dueling angels the Seven Deadly Sins Faustus tormenting the Pope and his summoning of the spirit of Alexander the Great But the playwright created equally powerful scenes that invest the work with tragic dignity among them the doomed man s calling upon Christ to save him and his ultimate rejection of salvation for the embrace of Helen of Troy br With immense poetic skill and psychological insight that foreshadowed the later work of Shakespeare and the Jacobean playwrights Marlowe created in Dr Faustus one of the first true tragedies in English Vividly dramatic rich in poetic grandeur this classic play remains a robust and lively exemplar of the glories of Elizabethan drama
