No description available, Marlowe s seven plays dramatise the fatal lure of potent forces whether religious occult or erotic In the victories of Tamburlaine Faustus s encounters with the demonic the irreverence of Barabas in THE JEW OF MALTA and the humiliation of Edward II in his fall from power and influence Marlowe explores the shifting balance between power and helplessness the sacred and its desecration, 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, No description available
