Christopher Marlowe

Christopher Marlowe (baptised 26 February 1564 30 May 1593) was an English Elizabethan dramatist, poet, and translator. Marlowe was the foremost Elizbethan writer of tragedies prior to Shakespeare, and he has been proposed by some as the true author of Shakespeare's plays.

  • The Jew of Malta (c.1589)
  • Edward II (c.1592)
  • The Massacre at Paris (c.1593)

Poetry

  • Translation of Lucan's Pharsalia (date unknown)
