Hamlet: History and commentary
Amber Waves, 2005 - Drama - 479 pages
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.
