Overview

The essential lyric works of the great Elizabethan playwright–newly revised and updated

Though best known for his plays–and for courting danger as a homosexual, a spy, and an outspoken atheist–Christopher Marlowe was also an accomplished and celebrated poet. This long-awaited updated and revised edition of his poems and translations contains his complete lyric works–from his translations of Ovidian elegies to his most famous poem, “The Passionate Shepherd to His Love,” to the impressive epic mythological poem “Hero and Leander.”
