5.0 out of 5 stars A comprehensive academic overview of Marlowe's work and times Feb. 3 2009
By E. A. Bucchianeri - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is exactly as the title suggests, a companion book for Marlovian students, however, you do not have to be an academic to enjoy this work. Comprised of sixteen different essays, seventeen if you count the introduction, written by the most respected Marlowe scholars of our times, this book is accessible to the general reader. I highly recommend it for anyone who is generally familiar with the playwright and who desires to progress to the next level in the academic field. It is an excellent book displaying a cross-section of the latest trends in Marlovian research.

The titles of the various chapters are self explanatory:
`Introduction: Marlowe in the twenty-first century', `Marlowe's life', `Marlovian texts and authorship', `Marlowe and style', `Marlowe and the politics of religion', `Marlowe and the English literary sense', `Marlowe's poems and classicism', `Tamburlaine the Great, Parts One and Two', `The Jew of Malta', `Edward II', `Doctor Faustus', `Dido, Queen of Carthage and The Massacre of Paris', `Tragedy, patronage and power', `Geography and identity in Marlowe', `Marlowe's men and women: gender and sexuality', `Marlowe in theatre and film', `Marlowe's reception and influence'.

The book also features a chronology of Marlowe's life, several illustrations, suggested reading lists, an index, and a nifty listing of other Cambridge Companions that are available.
