"Christopher Marlowe: Poet & Spy is the most thorough and detailed picture of Marlowe's life in over fifty years. Based on years of meticulous research, Park Honan's biography contains many new findings, including details of Marlowe's home life and schooling, his time at Corpus Christi College, Cambridge, and his reading, teachers, and early achievements. A newly-discovered letter has provided information on the famous putative portrait at Cambridge, while the Latin writings of Marlowe's friend, Thomas Watson, are used for the first time to illuminate Marlowe's life in London and his career as a spy. There are new accounts of his espionage on the continent, including in particular his arrest in Flushing." "This is also the first biography to investigate thoroughly Marlowe's relationships with fellow playwrights such as Kyd and Shakespeare, and his chief patron, Thomas Walsingham. With closer views of Marlowe in relation to the Elizabethan stage than ever before, Honan examines in detail his aims, mind, and techniques as exhibited in all of his plays, from Dido, the Tamburlaine dramas, and Doctor Faustus through to The Jew of Malta and Edward II." "Throughout, there is a strong emphasis on Marlowe's friendships and homoeroticism. Fresh information is brought to bear on his seductive use of blasphemy, his street fights, his methods of preparing himself for writing, and his atheism and religious interests. The book also explores his attraction to scientists and mathematicians such as Thomas Harriot and others in the Ralegh-Northumberland set of thinkers and experimenters. Finally, there is new data on spies and business agents such as Robert Poley, Nicholas Skeres, and Ingram Frizer, and a detailed account of the circumstances that led up to Marlowe's gruesome murder in Deptford."--Jacket

Shakespeare as a challenge for literary biography : a history of biographies of Shakespeare since 1898 by Arthur Maltby( Book )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book argues that, despite the quantity of writing and record searching, Shakespearean biographies remain curiously unsatisfactory, even contradictory and their subject remains elusive. Part 1 analyzes the problems faced by all literary biographers, but with special reference to Shakespeare. Part 2 - the heart of the book - provides a critical survey and appraisal of the many and varied Shakespearean 'lives' since 1898, seeking to provide vigorous, but constructive and scholarly comment. This critical analysis includes a chapter on 'heretical' lives. The author then questions six major biographers directly in Part 3, before offering his conclusions. End notes elaborate on points made, and citations are given for books, articles and scholarly journals, items in newspapers, personal correspondence, and material held in specialist archive collections
