An imaginative life,
By A Customer
This review is from: The World of Christopher Marlowe (Hardcover)
I found this to be an imaginative book describing the world in which Christopher Marlowe existed, was reared, was educated, wrote and fared. As with any subject where the documentary evidence is limited, many gaps have to be filled in by speculation. The author dealt with many of the enquiries in a deft way. The narrative pursued in the book is never dull. My only reservation is that Marlowe is a will-o-the-wisp and I never felt that I grasped the subject's life. That of course is not the author's fault. Overall, an intriguing account of an interesting playwright and poet.
