  9. Christopher Marlowe Trivia


The Elizabethan playwright Christopher Marlowe, who may or may not have been a spy, died in mysterious circumstances at the age of 29. Before that, he was considered the greatest tragedian of his day. He is probably best known now for his 'Doctor Faustus', the first dramatisation of the German legend.
