This review is from: The Life & Complete Works Of Christopher Marlowe (Kindle Edition)
The joy of possessing a kindle! Now I can read Christopher Marlowe whenever I want to. His work has such a direct and personal feel, who can resist someone who writes 'Where both deliberate the love is slight:Who ever loved, that loved not at first sight?'
I find inspiration in so many of his words:
'Nature that framed us of four elements
Warring within our breasts for regiment
Doth teach us all to have aspiring minds
Our souls, whose faculties can comprehend
The wondrous architecture of the world
And measure every wandering plantet's course
Still climbing after knowledge infinite'
I also enjoy his forcefully expressed opinions:
'I count religion but a childish toy,
And hold there is no sin but ignorance.'
For me this book is unbelievably good value. And to be able to read about Christopher Marlowe's life as well. Wonderful.
