Subject:        Marlowe and Autobiography

Well, Marlowe wasn't Jewish, or a lame world conqueror, nor a lovesick
African queen.  It does seem likely that he shared the sexual
orientation of Edward II and the religious doubt of Faustus, and the
detailed account of French politics in The Massacre at Paris may have
been informed by his own experiences and those of people he knew
personally. But what does it prove?
