'This collection of seventeen essays gives readers the latest thinking on him and his works ... will prove invaluable to students of their respective subjects.' Contemporary Review 'The Companion can be recommended for its detailed information on all aspects of Marlowe's life and work and for the productive use it makes of modern scholarship and critical approaches. Its authoritative contributors and its orderly arrangement of topics make it an accessible and stimulating source for all those interested in Elizabethan literature and in theatre studies.' Reference Reviews 'This collection of seventeen wide-ranging essays testifies to the rich and exciting development of Marlovian studies currently taking place. The book brings together a number of scholarly and stimulating essays by some of the leading critics in the field ... this volume will doubtless serve as a work of reference on Marlowe for many years to come. ... I warmly recommend the collection for academic libraries and students of Marlovian studies: the Companion provides an absorbing introduction for readers new to Marlowe's works, but also a good source of reference for those already more engaged with the Marlovian tradition.'
