Christopher Marlowe (Paperback)Una Mary Ellis-Fermor (author)
- We can order this
First published in 1927, this book aims to trace the development of Christopher Marlowe's mind and art as these are revealed in the surviving parts of his work, while portraying the personality thus perceived. Professor Ellis-Fermor begins by looking at Marlowe's life and early works, before making a more detailed study of Tamburlaine, Faustus, The Plays of Policy, and finaly Hero and Leander. She then goes on, in the appendix of this work, to consider contention and true tragedy before concluding with a study of Marlowe in the eyes of his contemporaries. The author has followed the text of the Oxford Edition of Marlowe's works (1910), except in a few quotations, where she has preferred the reading of another early edition.
