Marlowe and the popular tradition : innovation in the English drama before 1595
"Spy, troublemaker, homosexual, atheist, University wit? Not in this study. Marlowe and the popular tradition turns aside from these popular stereotypes to consider Marlowe as a popular dramatist who inherited an audience with certain expectations and shared experiences. This book explores Marlowe's engagement with the traditions of the popular stage in the 1580s and early 1590s. It offers a new approach to his major plays on terms of staging and audience response, as well as providing a new account of the English drama in these important but largely neglected years."
