Marlowe Up Close

An extraordinary book by Roberta Ballantine reveals the last half of Marlowe’s life: twenty-nine years filled with high adventure, touching dramatic writings, his mentors, employers and friends, lovers, wives and children and the most difficult kind of loyal service to England. Missing from every previous biography of Marlowe, many events in his life now appear for the first time, fused from increments of factual evidence beautifully corroborated by surprising steganographic messages created by the man himself – a peerless writer and ghost of all the Shakespeare works.

The more I examine the book the more I believe this is a remarkable piece of scholarship. She seems to have covered every base, to have organized the whole carefully, and with a thoroughness that should make this work a valuable resource for any serious student of literature or history. Or, for that matter, for any student of the humanities-the human dimension permeates almost every page.

I highly recommend Samuel Blumenfeld's latest The Marlowe-Shakespeare Connection: A New Study of the Authorship Question.

Wonderful! Thanks for opening the doors to all of us who believe the same thing.
I just got an offer from an agent for my fiction book "A Reckoning for the Sparrow" dealing with the same topic. You can read an excerpt at www.dkmarley.com!
