Subject:        Marlowe Joins Chaucer and Shakespeare

Two quality papers in the UK touched the legend/myth surrounding
Marlowe's death (and hence the usual taboo issue). This is because
Christopher Marlowe's memorial window at 'Poets' Corner' in Westminster
Abbey reads 'Christopher Marlowe 1564-?1593'. Yes, the question mark.
Since this is a taboo issue on SHAKSPER, I'm not including the whole
articles. SHAKSPERians who are interested can visit the following pages.

The Guardian (with an online discussion group)
'Did Marlowe die in a tavern brawl or did he escape to France and adopt
"William Shakespeare" as his pen-name?'

The Daily Telegraph
'Marlowe tribute puts question mark over Shakespeare'

Best wishes,
Takashi Kozuka
