Christopher Marlowe lived a life that echoed the violence in his plays. He was born in 1564 and was murdered in 1593 in what is speculated to be a political assassination. An educated man, he received both his B. A. and M. A. at Corpus Christi College, Cambridge, where it is believed that he wrote Part I of «Tamberlaine», and possibly «Dido Queen of Carthage». Machiavellian themes are present in much of Marlowe's work, the main characters constantly involved in a tumultuous upward climb toward unattainable infinite success. Marlowe's perhaps greatest legacy was introducing blank verse into English theatre with «Tamburlaine The Great, Part I.» This collection includes: «Dido Queen of Carthage», «Tamburlaine, Parts I & II», «The Jew of Malta», «The Massacre At Paris», «Edward The Second», «The Tragical History of Doctor Faustus», «The First Book of Lucan», «Ovid's Elegies», and «Hero and Leander».
