The Complete Poems and Translations (Penguin Classics)by Christopher Marlowe
Synopses & Reviews
The essential lyric works of the great Elizabethan playwright--newly revised and updated
Though best known for his plays--and for courting danger as a homosexual, a spy, and an outspoken atheist--Christopher Marlowe was also an accomplished and celebrated poet. This long-awaited updated and revised edition of his poems and translations contains his complete lyric works--from his translations of Ovidian elegies to his most famous poem, "The Passionate Shepherd to His Love," to the impressive epic mythological poem "Hero and Leander."
About the Author
Christopher Marlowe (1564-1593), regarded as the foremost English dramatist before Shakespeare, was murdered at the age of twenty-nine.
Stephen Orgel, the Jackson Eli Reynolds Professor of Humanities at Stanford University, is the general editor of the Pelican Shakespeare series and the Cambridge Studies in Renaissance Literature and Culture.
