Study Guide to Faustus and Other Works by Christopher Marlowe

A comprehensive study guide offering in-depth explanation, essay, and test prep for selected works by Christopher Marlowe, the foremost Elizabethian tragedian of his day. Titles in this study guide include Doctor Faustus, Tamburlaine the Great, The Jew of Malta, and Edward II.

As Shakespeare’s most important predecessor and influencer of English drama, Marlowe’s plays are most known for the use of blank verse and their overreaching protagonists. Moreover, Marlowe took the humanist literary discussion of sexuality further than his contemporaries, setting the stage for the Elizabethian period’s later years of erotic poetry.
