The Life & Complete Works Of Christopher Marlowe

Hi everyone! I've just released a new collection of Christopher Marlowe's plays and poetry. It contains some of the original research that I undertook for my historical novel THE MARLOWE CONSPIRACY. Also, as far as I'm aware, this book is the only one to have transcripts of all primary documents about Marlowe, as well as an entire collection of his plays and poetry in one volume. And only for 99 cents!

Here's the official spiel below:

THE LIFE & COMPLETE WORKS OF CHRISTOPHER MARLOWE



Described by Tennyson as the 'Morning Star' of Elizabethan drama, Christopher Marlowe is one of the greatest playwrights in the English language. This book gathers together all the crucial information needed for a study into the life of Marlowe, including a detailed timeline, a biographical profile, an extensive list of all Marlowe's personal associates, and a collection of all the key primary documents relating to Marlowe's dramatic life and death (e.g., The Privy Council Note To Cambridge Authorities, The Dutch Church Libel, The Baines Note, & much more).

Optimized for navigation as an eBook, with a table of contents linked to every section, this book also features a complete collection of all Marlowe's plays and poetry.

PLAYS INCLUDED:
- Dido, Queen of Carthage
- Tamburlaine The Great, Part One
- Tamburlaine The Great, Part Two
- The Jew Of Malta
- Doctor Faustus (from the Quarto of 1604, and from the Quarto of 1616)
- Edward the Second
- The Massacre at Paris

POETRY INCLUDED:
- Hero and Leander
- Ovid's Elegies (translation)
- Lucan's Pharsalia (translation)
- The Passionate Shepherd To His Love
- Fragment
- Dialogue In Verse

BONUS FEATURE:
- An exclusive excerpt of M. G. Scarsbrook's novel THE MARLOWE CONSPIRACY, an historical thriller featuring Christopher Marlowe and William Shakespeare teaming-up to expose a high level government conspiracy.

New Elizabethan Era Film

Just found out that there's an exciting new Tudor film due to be released this October -- Anonymous.

It's directed by Roland Emmerich and stars Rhys Ifans as Shakespeare. Unlike my Biographical collection, the film is all about the Shakespeare-Authorship debate (involving the Earl of Oxford), but it will still include Christopher Marlowe as a character.

Hopefully it will stimulate loads more interest in one of the most exciting subjects in English history -- Elizabethan theatre.

Can't wait!!

Here's some links if you wanna see:

A Few Facts About Mr. Marlowe:

Name --
since spelling was not yet standardized in Elizabethan England his name also appears in various records as "Marlin", "Merlin", "Marlyn", "Marlen", "Marley", and "Malyn". His popular nickname was "Kit", but he also called himself "mercury" (after the messenger to the gods in Roman mythology).

Birth --
officially unknown, but sometimes given as February 6th, 1564. He was baptized February 26th, 1564 at St. George's Church, Canterbury.

Death -- Wednesday, May 30th, 1593. Killed by Ingram Frizer during a fight at a meeting house in Deptford. As reported in the coroner's report, he attacked Frizer (who was unarmed) and in the ensuing struggle was accidentally struck in the brow by his own dagger. He was 29 years old.

Legacy -- with his earliest play, Marlowe entered history as the first major English dramatist to use blank verse and reveal its potential as one of the most effective, poetic forms in theatre. From then onwards, blank verse quickly became the standard dramatic form for the entire renaissance period. Centuries later, Swinburne commented that Marlowe is "the greatest discoverer, the most daring and inspired pioneer, in all our poetic literature. Before him there was neither genuine blank verse nor a genuine tragedy in our language".
