With Shakespeare's Marlowe, Robert Logan shows how Shakespeare's examination of the mechanics of his fellow dramatist's artistry led him to absorb and develop three especially powerful influences: Marlowe's remarkable verbal dexterity, his imaginative flexibility in reconfiguring standard notions of dramatic genres, and his astute use of ambivalence and ambiguity. This study argues that Marlowe and Shakespeare regarded one another not chiefly as writers with great themes, but rather as practicing dramatists and poets.
