    I am a great fan of Christopher Marlowe, both of his poetry and his plays The Everyman edition that I own has held up under some pretty heavy usage, as I tend to mark up a book until it vomits pages Good thing I own this one Marlowe s choice of subjects for plays always dumbfounded me He went for the most unpleasant subjects possible Tamburlaine, not just one, but two of those The Jew of Malta, sheesh what a horrible title Edward II, we all know he died as a result of a hot poker stuck up I am a great fan of Christopher Marlowe, both of his poetry and his plays The Everyman edition that I own has held up under some pretty heavy usage, as I tend to mark up a book until it vomits pages Good thing I own this one Marlowe s choice of subjects for plays always dumbfounded me He went for the most unpleasant subjects possible Tamburlaine, not just one, but two of those The Jew of Malta, sheesh what a horrible title Edward II, we all know he died as a result of a hot poker stuck up his ass The ever unpleasant The Massacre at Paris where Huguenots get killed by the hundreds, and Catherine the Queen is blamed for the whole thing But We also have Dido,Queen of Carthage a very lovely telling of that very sad tale It s also a bit snarky in places, especially where the gods are involved Doctor Faustus which is his greatest work Marlowe was part of the University educated dramatists Shakespeare had no real University education, so we might say that the subject matter chosen by Marlowe was that of the classical world, and heavily influenced by Protestant thinking, The Massacre at Paris Shakespeare took his from English history, and therein lay a world of difference.Overall, I prefer Shakespeare to Marlowe, but it has to be said that there was Marlowe, Jonson and Shakespeare that are really worth remembering today, the rest just wrote plays Oh, now I have set the hordes of dramaturges on me like the furies of old
