Much of the scholarship on Marlowe and the theatrical marketplace focuses on years at the end of the playwright’s career and beyond; comparatively little explores the company affiliation and repertorial context of Marlowe’s plays when they were new. In this essay, I explore the commercial landscape for drama from the late 1580s into 1593 from the perspective of Marlowe and the impact of his plays. Acknowledging widely-held opinions about the influence of Marlowe on literary aspects of non-Marlovian plays including characterization, dramatic verse, and genre, I focus on the business of playing for adult companies, specifically on their choice of venues and repertorial offerings, in order to align the scholarly tradition on Marlowe’s plays with current research on repertory-based company performance styles and theatrical venues.
Presenting the first exploration of Christopher Marlowe's complex place in the canon, this collection reads Marlowe's work against an extensive backdrop of repertory, publication, transmission, and reception. Wide-ranging and thoughtful chapters consider Marlowe's deliberate engagements with the stage and print culture, the agents and methods involved in the transmission of his work, and his cultural reception in the light of repertory and print evidence. With contributions from major international scholars, the volume considers all of Marlowe's oeuvre, offering illuminating approaches to his extended animation in theatre and print, from the putative theatrical debut of Tamburlaine in 1587 to the most current editions of his work.
