'The seventeen short chapters cut quickly to the chase, and Melnikoff and Knutson have deftly edited the whole into an unusually coherent collection. Their book will encourage readers to think again about the models of literary influence which so dominate Marlowe studies, but which often operate through cloudy reference to mighty lines and overreaching heroes.'

'This voluminous collection of seventeen essays represents some of the latest and most authoritative voices in Marlowe studies. For the first time, Marlovian scholars collectively put Marlowe in the context of both early modern print culture and theatre history, initiating a new conversation that departs from traditional focuses on textual flaws, authorship, and Marlowe’s role as a Shakespearean foil.'

‘… this collection shows that the most exciting work in Marlowe studies is taking place in textual and theatre studies. When the two are put together, as in this volume, the intersection is endlessly illuminating.’
