Front Cover
Sarah K. Scott, Michael L. Stapleton
Ashgate Publishing, Ltd., 2010 - Literary Criticism - 261 pages
Contributions to this volume explore the idea of Marlowe as a working artist, in keeping with John Addington Symonds' characterization of him as a 'sculptor-poet'. The collection reflects the flourishing state of Marlowe studies as it shapes the 21st century conception of the poet and playwright as master craftsman.
