Christopher Marlowe (1564-1593)

Welcome to the Christopher Marlowe site!

This site contains information on Marlowe's life and is home to three of his plays: Doctor Faustus, Tamburlaine the Great and The Jew of Malta. As with every dramatist on the Elizabethan and Jacobean Drama website, the Marlowe site is organised into individual subpages as follows: Life of Marlowe, respective play(s), and Bibliography. The material available on each of the three plays ranges from text to stage history, with a focus on twentieth century British stage productions, from Marlowe criticism to production reviews, from play related activities to picture galleries, from survey of film productions to electronic editions of the plays.

To find out more about how Doctor Faustus speaks to students today visit the Pope Scene. If you are interested in Marlowe criticism - old and new - visit the Bibliography. For the up to date performance history of the three Marlowe plays hosted on this site visit Dr Faustus - Stage History, Tamburlaine the Great - Stage History and The Jew of Malta - Stage History
