'Innovative and engaging, this anthology is a rich addition to Marlowe studies, complementing and extending the best of recent scholarship. Its collective emphasis on Marlowe as a literary craftsman is timely in its vision of Marlowe as a working artist, a shaper and refiner of ideas.' Bruce Brandt, South Dakota State University, USA and Past President, Marlowe Society of America 'Christopher Marlowe the Craftsman offers all Marlovians infinite riches... the essays in this volume reach beyond its pages to pages elsewhere - some written, some being written, some yet to be written. Readers can take from Marlowe the Craftsman individual essays that simply delight their minds.' Marlowe Society of America Newsletter 'Well written and well crafted, the book is both accessible and stimulating... Recommended.' Choice '... refreshingly, this work of the Marlowe Association of America blends together a variety of theoretical and critical approaches. The breadth, inclusiveness, and robust heterogeneity of this collection speak to the willingness of Scott and Stapleton as editors to allow a wide range of established scholars to share what is freshest and most interesting to them.'
