Reviews

'A much-needed scholarly study, highlighting Marlowe's commitment to ideas of 'liberty'. Tracing the influence of republican thought from 1570s France, Netherlands and Scotland, it convincingly defines Marlowe's work as an expression of 'linguistic' and 'imaginative' republicanism, bringing his better-known texts into fruitful dialogue with unjustly overlooked works, such as the translation of Book One of Lucan's Pharsalia.' - Cathy Shrank, University of Sheffield
