Sixteen leading scholars provide accessible and authoritative chapters on all relevant topics of Marlowe's life and works, including on his texts and style, his use of classicism, and his representations of sexuality and gender and of geography and identity. The volume also considers the religious, political, courtly, and literary contexts of Marlowe's authorship, his presence in modern film and theatre, and his influence on subsequent writers.See all Product Description

This has long been the result of academia's non-existent research, taking a dig at Shakespeare's supposed ignorance of geography.
Absolutely wrong! Bohemia in the 16th century most certainly did have a seacoast as any traveler through that area would have known.
And certainly as an expert in geography, Sullivan should know.
