A comprehensive study guide offering in-depth explanation, essay, and test prep for selected works by Christopher Marlowe, the foremost Elizabethian tragedian of his day. Titles in this study guide include Faustus, Tamburlaine, Jew of Malta, and Edward II. As Shakespeare’s most important predecessor and influencer of English drama, Marlowe’s plays are most known for the use of blank verse and their overreaching protagonists. Moreover, Marlowe took the humanist literary discussion of sexuality further than his contemporaries, setting the stage for the Elizabethian period’s later years of erotic poetry. This Bright Notes Study Guide explores the context and history of Marlowe’s classic work, helping students to thoroughly explore the reasons they have stood the literary test of time. Each Bright Notes Study Guide contains: - Introductions to the Author and the Work - Character Summaries - Plot Guides - Section and Chapter Overviews - Test Essay and Study Q&As The Bright Notes Study Guide series offers an in-depth tour of more than 275 classic works of literature, exploring characters, critical commentary, historical background, plots, and themes. This set of study guides encourages readers to dig deeper in their understanding by including essay questions and answers as well as topics for further research.

The Spanish Tragedy was the first 'revenge tragedy' on the English Renaissance stage: but for its influence, major dramas including The Revenger's Tragedy, The Duchess of Malfi and even Hamlet would not exist as they do. It is thus a key text for the study of Renaissance drama and normally appears in introductory undergraduate courses on Renaissance drama and Shakespeare. Despite its initial smash-hit status, after the closing of the theatres in 1642 the play was only once performed in Britain before its gradual revival in the 20th century. Following its first professional performance in 1973, the play has come to be recognised as a Renaissance classic, receiving frequent performance. This volume will bring together its most insightful and influential modern scholars to produce an edition read both by experts in the field and lovers of Thomas Kyd's drama.
