Breve appunto in inglese sulla vita di Christofer Marlowe e trama della sua opera "Doctor Faustus" (1 pagine formato doc)
Christopher Marlowe He was the first great poetic voice of Elizabethan age and he was the first who composed in blank verse. He was born in the same year of Shakespeare, 1564. He studied at Cambridge. During his study he was probably recluted to work as a spy for the protection of the queen. He was stubbed in a brawl at a London tavern and was killed. It doesn’t know if this was an accident or a murder linked to his work in espionage. In fact his quarrelsome character is a state of fact. His rebellious personality comes out in his works that are all of polemical nature: rebellion against the Church, the limitation of knowledge, contemporary moralism. Doctor Faustus, the plot Dr. Faustus, student of Wittenberg, has shut himself up in his study to decide his future. He knows all there is to know about law, medicine, theology, but he is still not satisfied. He knows that necromancy involves the forbidden pact with demons. He called two magicians to instruct him in this art and he invokes the spirit of Mephistopheles.
