Transcript of CHRISTOPHER MARLOWE & SIR WALTER RALEIGH

ENGLISH IV
MANNING

CHRISTOPHER MARLOWE
& SIR WALTER RALEIGH

Playwright, poet, brawler, and spy, Christopher Marlowe was the rebel of Elizabethan writers.
In 1587, he began doing espionage for England, but his government affiliation did not keep in on the right side of the law. He was arrested in 1593 on charges of making scandalous and controversial speeches.
Days before the court date, Marlowe died from a stab wound sustained a bar brawl. It was three against one. While his assailant was acquitted on grounds of self-defense, it is possible that the testimony was fabricated and Marlowe was assassinated for political reasons.

1564 - 1593
Marlowe's best-known play is
The Tragicall History of Dr. Faustus
,
the story about a man who bargains with Satan.
Marlowe's heroes are drive, power-hungry men who refuse to recognize their own limits as humans or their responsibilities to others.
To express these themes, Marlowe created wild and soaring poetry, like nothing heard before on the stage.
Christopher Marlowe
1564 - 1593
Handsome, arrogant, and dashing, Sir Walter Raleigh was a colorful figure in a colorful era. His powerful poems reflect the courage of a man who was ready to accept his fate without self-pity
Raleigh, who called himself a "seafaring man, a soldier, a courtier," was
a favorite of Queen Elizabeth I.
Sir Walter Raleigh
1552 - 1618
After Elizabeth I died, his enemies convicted him of treason on trumped-up evidence and sentence him to death
Even in prison, Raleigh dreamed of a final expedition to South America. In 1617, still under a death sentence, he was granted this last voyage. It was a disaster. His men attacked a Spanish settlement, and the Spanish king pressed King James I to execute Raleigh.
Raleigh's last words upon seeing the executioner's ax reflect both his courage and wit: "This is a sharp medicine, but it is a physician for all diseases."
Sir Walter Raleigh
1552 - 1618
