Description - Marlowe: The Plays by Stevie Simkin
Christopher Marlowe's four major works ("Doctor Faustus", "Edward II", "The Jew of Malta" and "Tamburlaine") are daring explorations of themes such as the nature of kingship, salvation and damnation, sexuality, and ethnic prejudice. This book looks in depth at extracts from each of these plays, exploring them in parallel to uncover key concerns, including heroes and anti heroes, gender, and power and politics. As well as guiding readers in an understanding of the place of these issues in their Elizabethan context, and inviting them to consider their resonance at the beginning of the 21st century. The book looks at Marlowe's style and his significance in the evolution of English drama.
