    One thought on “Christopher Marlowe: Overreacher”

    1. Levin offers a critical study of the work of Christopher Marlowe, the other great Elizabethan dramatist and poet. However he writes this book in a very "literary" style, by this I mean he is more concerned with how he presents his interpretations than how to help the reader relate this to Marlowe's actual writing. If I had the time to leisurely read this book, & if I were intimately acquainted with Marlowe's writings (which I would like to be, but I am still at work at this), I might be able [...]

    2. More a set of thought-provoking and erudite essays on each of Marlowe's works than a biography, yet it still provides opportunities for insight into the playwright.

    3. probably the standard reading of Marlowe and his work as a whole, and certainly the most influential single interpretation.
