    Christopher Marlowe at Deats, Sara Munson, Logan, Robert A., Marlowe, Christopher There has never been a retrospective on Christopher Marlowe as comprehensive, complete and up-to-date in appraising the Marlovian landscape.   I took a detour to read the earlier work by Marlowe 'Doctor Faustus'.

(Update: Doctor Faustus is not "flat" at all; he is a reflection of Christopher Marlowe as Faust is of Goethe/5.
