Marlowe and the Early Shakespeare

Excerpt

The five lectures printed in this book are the Clark Lectures given at Trinity College, Cambridge, in the Lent Term of 1951. Passages have been included which there was not time to deliver, and to the last lecture a few new paragraphs have been added. While some notes and references may be found at the end of the book, the references by no means represent the sum of my indebtedness to the many who have written on my theme. Here I can only mention a general debt to Dr. F. S. Boas Christopher Marlowe (1940), Professor J. Bakeless's The Tragicall History of Christopher Marlowe (1942), and to the editors of the standard edition of Marlowe's works published by Messrs. Methuen between 1930 and 1933. I have also to acknowledge my particular obligation to two other Marlowe scholars, Dr. Ethel Seaton and Sir Walter Greg, who have been good enough to read my manuscript.

To the Council of Trinity College, to Dr. G. M. Trevelyan, late Master, and to members of the Cambridge English Faculty, I am grateful for hospitality and many kindnesses.

F. P. W.
