Reviews about The Cambridge Companion to Christopher Marlowe (Cambridge Companions to Literature) (4):

This book is exactly as the title suggests, a companion book for Marlovian students, however, you do not have to be an academic to enjoy this work. Comprised of sixteen different essays, seventeen if you count the introduction, written by the most respected Marlowe scholars of our times, this book is accessible to the general reader. I highly recommend it for anyone who is generally familiar with the playwright and who desires to progress to the next level in the academic field. It is an excellent book displaying a cross-section of the latest trends in Marlovian research.

The titles of the various chapters are self explanatory:
`Introduction: Marlowe in the twenty-first century', `Marlowe's life', `Marlovian texts and authorship', `Marlowe and style', `Marlowe and the politics of religion', `Marlowe and the English literary sense', `Marlowe's poems and classicism', `Tamburlaine the Great, Parts One and Two', `The Jew of Malta', `Edward II', `Doctor Faustus', `Dido, Queen of Carthage and The Massacre of Paris', `Tragedy, patronage and power', `Geography and identity in Marlowe', `Marlowe's men and women: gender and sexuality', `Marlowe in theatre and film', `Marlowe's reception and influence'.

The book also features a chronology of Marlowe's life, several illustrations, suggested reading lists, an index, and a nifty listing of other Cambridge Companions that are available.

This is a highly intellectual study of the life, times and works of Christopher Marlowe and well done as the Cambridge companions usually are. I highly recommend it to the student who wishes to learn in depth of Marlowe.

Generally interesting essays. However, Garrett A. Sullivan, Jr.'s "Geography and identity in Marlow," contains an obvious mistake. In his very first sentence he refers to ". . .Shakespeare's famously non-existent Bohemian shore in the Winter's Tale."
This has long been the result of academia's non-existent research, taking a dig at Shakespeare's supposed ignorance of geography.
Absolutely wrong! Bohemia in the 16th century most certainly did have a seacoast as any traveler through that area would have known.
And certainly as an expert in geography, Sullivan should know.
