SUPERANNO New historical, scientific, and literary evidence suggests that Christopher Marlowe--London's leading playwright and a secret government agent--staged his death and composed Hamlet and other works in partnership with Shakespeare. Volume 1 includes the text of the play, parallels with Marlowe's earlier works, and a summary of the evidence for his role. Volume 2 recounts Marlowe's life, "death," and literary resurrection, explores his collaboration with Shakespeare, and analyzes the play, including resonances with the leading characters.

About the author (2005)

Alex Jack, the editor, has taught and written widely about literature, history, and the healing arts. He collaborated with Don Campbell on The Mozart Effect (Avon), with Michio Kushi on The Cancer-Prevention Diet (St. Martin's) and The Macrobiotic Path to Total Health (Ballantine), and other best-selling books. His earlier medical study of Hamlet in Diet for a Strong Health (St. Martin's) showed that blank verse accords with the heartbeat and enhances cardiovascular health.
