Christopher Marlowe : a Renaissance life by Constance Brown Kuriyama( Book )

11 editions published between 2002 and 2010 in English and held by 895 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Christopher Marlowe (1564-1593) is portrayed in most accounts of his life by biographers and critics as a mysterious and sensational action figure, a hapless pawn of circumstance, or a pseudonymous cipher. Constance Brown Kuriyama's biography reconstructs the eventful life of a radically innovative playwright who flourished briefly and died violently more than four hundred years ago, yet persists in the romantic imagination even today." "Many discoveries about Marlowe's life have emerged over the past hundred years. The author here supplements these findings with new material, placing the dramatist and poet more precisely in the historical milieu. Kuriyama interprets Marlowe's acts of violence - inexplicable though they may seem - as logical consequences of the circumstances he faced. Experience and temperament both accounted for the characteristically brash way he moved through the world."--BOOK JACKET

"Many of those who knew the intimate Charlie Chaplin documented his life and their perceptions of him in their writings. One of the most fascinating and revealing of these accounts has, until now, been available only in French. May Reeves' portrait of Chaplin (as told to Claire Goll) covers their year-long relationship during his 1931-1932 vacation in Europe. The enigmatic actress and dancer Reeves, in chronicling her relationship with Chaplin, both elaborates on and offers contrasts to the popular impressions of her brilliant travelling companion. Constance Brown Kuriyama has translated Reeves' original Charlie Chaplin Intime into English, and also includes an introduction, and a translation of reminiscences by Chaplin's press agent, Carlyle T
