About this book


This new Chronology offers a unique and accessible overview of key dates relevant to Christopher Marlowe's life and works, and enables readers to navigate their way through the various pieces of evidence for the hotly contested dating of his plays and poems. Since Marlowe's plays often focus on real historical figures, details of their lives are also included to allow readers to see what liberties Marlowe has taken in his dramatizations of their lives.
