It is evident that Dali furthermore felt threatened by the femme fatale…

    Introduction: The greatest of the University Wits, Christopher Marlowe has to his credit quite a few significant plays. Arguably, he is second only to Shakespeare among sixteenth century English playwrights. As a dramatist, Marlowe brilliantly reflects the contemporary Renaissance zeitgeist.
