he was a famous Elizabethan poet and playwright who was accused of being a spy and a heretic. He was stabbed in the head and killed in a bar fight.
He was stabbed in a bar fight just above the eye. In Deptford South East London near to Greenwich. It is thought that the bar fight was a rouse and that the real intention was to assassinate Marlowe. Marlowe was well traveled (especially Italy), gay, and very accomplished. There was also the Lord Gr…eat Chamberlain who was supporting William Shakespeare's plays. Richard the Third and Romeo and Juliette are both suspect. Up to 1600 and after many playwrights used pseudonyms as they favored their head over their prose.

How did Christopher know Shakespeare you ask? He knew him through the people of the town. There is no existing record of them meeting, but it seems unlikely that they wouldn't have crossed paths at some point. At the beginning of Shakespeare's career they both were writing for the same theatre, the …Rose, and would have both been in the same social circles. They were rivals through the plays they wrote and acted. ( Full Answer )
It is believed that Marlowe is the real "Shakespeare" and that Shakespeare took their works. Your Welcome, Levi S.
They both were close Marlowe has excellent stories and underlining meaning in his plays but his characters are very dry and two dimensional. Shakespeare learned from Marlowe and created underlining theme stories but with relateable complex characters. Marlowe was also better at state stuff.… He was the first to use special effects ( Full Answer )
Christopher Marlowe was a famous English playwright who died in 1593 at about the same time as Shakespeare's first works came out. Some historians believe in the Marlovian theory, which suggests that Marlowe faked his death and began writing under the name William Shakespeare. However, most do not; …Shakespeare was already writing before Marlowe's death and had a different style, and the coroner's records are quite clear that Marlowe died of a knife in the eye. Pretty hard to fake that. Shakespeare (like most theatre people of the day) was a Marlowe fan, and made occasional references to his work. ( Full Answer )
Marlowe and Shakespeare were both playwright's in London in the late sixteenth century. Marlowe was one of the most popular playwrights when Shakespeare began his career in the theatre. They occasionally wrote for the same theatre companies. While any personal relationship between the two would be d…ifficult to prove, it is unlikely that they weren't familiar with one another. They were certainly familiar with each other's works. Marlowe was a significant influence on Shakespeare and it is not out of the realm of possibility that there were collaborations, as they were very common at that time. There's no prove of their having worked together, however, and there are other writers that would have been more likely to have collaborated with Shakespeare. ( Full Answer )
Christopher Marlowe was born in Canterbury Kent in 1564. He attended Cambridge University then moved to London in 1587 where he worked as a playwright. He died in Deptford South London in 1593.
He was the greatest of Shakespeare's predecessor in English drama. Born a shoemakers son in Canterbury in 1564. He went to the King's School and to Benet College, Cambridge. Got a BA in 1583 and a MA in 1587. Marlow was the first to use blank verse and with a power until that was not known. He conti…nued to write all of his life and producing plays. He died in 1593.

Not sure exactly what their names were, but my great grandmother's name was Marlowe, she died thirty years ago, and she use to say the family name was of some importance in England. She use to say we were decendents close to royalty.
No one knows for sure it is highly disputed however personly i belive it to be a conspiracy. It seems very unlikely considering the fact that Marlowe was killed in 1593, before the vast majority of Shakespeare's plays were written.
Actually Marlowe was not a rival to Shakespeare. This is because although the two men were born in the same year, Marlowe died in a bar fight in 1593, when he was only twenty-nine. Shakespeare, on the other hand, had only just begun his writing career in 1593 and none of his work had been publishe…d at the time of Marlowe's death. Shakespeare revered Marlowe's work, and modeled some of his own writing on his predecessor's. But Marlowe's unsurprisingly small body of work displays much less variety than Shakespeare's did, as Shakespeare had a twenty-five-year writing career in which to expand his talents, whereas all of Marlowe's work was written in a six-year period.

Christopher Marlowe was an Elizabethan poet and playwright. It is rumoured that he faked his death to use a new identity as William Shakespeare. Although it is extremely unlikely as there is evidence of both writers staging their plays at the same time. It would require some all but impossible fo…resight, planning and disguise.

William Shakespeare and Christopher Marlowe were not enemies. Although they were the same age, Marlowe was a bit of a child prodigy and had written all of his plays before his untimely death in 1593 at the age of only twenty-nine. At that time, Shakespeare had only started writing plays and had only… produced his earliest attempts. This was before the formation of The Lord Chamberlain's Men, and Shakespeare does not appear to have been clearly attached to any company. At that time it was the custom for newer playwrights to get help from other playwrights. Playwrights co-operated and collaborated and only very rarely got mad at each other. Shakespeare may well have got help from Marlowe, as well as other playwrights like George Peele. Certainly Shakespeare held Marlowe in highest esteem; he even quotes Marlowe as a homage in As You Like It. ( Full Answer )
Christopher Reeve's wife, Dana Reeve, died on March 6th, 2006. Although she had never smoked, she was diagnosed with lung cancer and announced this to the world in 2005. The illness would cause her death one year later.
It's not a novel, it's a play. It was first printed in 1604, but it had already been performed several times in the late 1500s.
Which of the following was not a contemporary of Shakespeare A Ben Jonson B Thomas Kyd C Geoffrey Chaucer D Christopher Marlowe?
I'm not and neither are you. He's been dead for almost 400 years which means he died before we were born. Anything that didn't happen in the years 1564-1616.
Christopher Marlowe was a playwright and poet, a contemporary of William Shakespeare's. (They were both born in 1564) Marlowe was famous for his plays Doctor Faustus and Tamburlaine. More recently his historical play Edward II has become more appreciated. Marlowe did not invent the idea of writing d…ialogue in blank verse, but he wrote more beautiful blank verse for his plays than any of his predecessors. Marlowe is also famous for his poem "A Passionate Shepherd to his Love" ( Full Answer )
Was this the face that launch'd a thousand ships And burnt the topless towers of Ilium? This was written by Christopher Marlowe in Doctor Faustus in sometime between 1590 and 1604.
yes an alien lured him to their spaceship with a 40 oz steak and took him.
There are some distinctly homoerotic tones in some of his works, particularly in Edward II and his poem Hero and Leander, arguably more than any other writer of his time. Pertaining directly to Marlowe himself, however, there is no evidence to indicate one way or the other.
There is a reference to it in 1593, so we know it was before that date. Scholars speculate that it may have been written some time in the 1580's
Marlowe was accused of being an atheist. This was at the time an offence punishable by death and was defined very vaguely so that it could encompass denying any point of doctrine held by the Church of England. Essentially it was not that much different from heresy. One of his accusers claimed that M…arlowe believed that "Christ was a bastard and his mother unchaste" which is certainly heretical but does not deny the existence of God, the definition of atheism we would now hold. By the logic of the day, however, such statements put Jesus into disrepute and, since Jesus was God, put God into disrepute, and as far as they were concerned, that was the same as atheism. Marlowe's accuser Richard Baines did make accusations that Marlowe told others "not to be afeared of hobgoblins", the implicit idea being that the God is no more than a hobgoblin. However, the accusations against Marlowe were made by Baines, who disliked Marlowe intensely, and Thomas Kyd, who was probably tortured after being found in possession of an anti-religious pamphlet which he claimed was Marlowe's from when the two were roommates. Marlowe was killed before these allegations could be cleared up one way or the other. Kyd's reputation never recovered and he died penniless as a result. There must be some considerable doubt whether the accusations against Marlowe were trumped up. Indeed the balance of opinion nowadays seems to favour this view. ( Full Answer )
Marlowe was a brilliant poet who greatly improved the lyrical quality of playwriting during his short life and brief career. He is considered by many to be the second greatest Elizabethan playwright after Shakespeare, so comparisons are natural
Although Marlowe and Shakespeare were about the same age (Marlowe was two months older), Marlowe died before Shakespeare's career really got started. If, as some believe, Shakespeare spent a significant portion of his "lost years" in the London theatre world, he could not have avoided being in conta…ct with Marlowe. What is more, Marlowe's style had considerable influence on the theatrical world even after his death, and must have influenced Shakespeare and all the other young writers of the day. Although the fact that Marlowe died in 1593 and Shakespeare's writing really started to take off at about the same time makes it tempting to wonder whether Marlowe faked his death and took over Shakespeare's identity, it is ridiculous to imagine Marlowe trying to get a grant of arms for John Shakespeare or negotiating the marriage between Susannah Shakespeare and John Hall. ( To say nothing about what Anne must have said when the new Will Shakespeare arrived in Stratford. "Hello dear--My God! Will, you've changed--you look just like Christopher Marlowe!"). Thanks to the enormous research efforts of Leslie Hotson in the 1920s we now have the actual detailed minutes of the Coroner's Inquest into Marlowe's death. ( Full Answer )
Bacon outlived Shakespeare by ten years. Marlowe was killed by a man called Ingram Frizer.
You must mean in the movie Shakespeare in Love, where Shakespeare has given the false name "Christopher Marlowe" and believes that his (Shakespeare's) enemies have killed Marlowe by mistake. This is an entirely fictional story for which there is no basis in fact.
Some scholars believe that Christopher Marlowe was gay, but thereis a lot of debate over it.
Christopher well basically he ran out of bad luck he didn't listen to anyones advice but his own thoughts 1/2 his crew mutinied and he had alot of people that hated him. so that showed him ay
Christopher Marlowe was born on February 26, 1564 and died on May 30, 1593. Christopher Marlowe would have been 29 years old at the time of death or 451 years old today.
Christopher Marlowe was an English playwright. He was born in 1564, two months before Shakespeare. He was university educated, and began writing plays for the Theatrical Company the Lord Admiral's Men. He wrote the following plays: Tamburlaine, parts one and two, Doctor Faustus, The Massacre at Pari…s, Edward II, and the Jew of Malta. All of these are tragedies. Marlowe was unfortunately killed in a tavern brawl by some agents sent to arrest him at the extremely young age of 29 in 1593. Although Marlowe and Shakespeare were of an age, there is no reason to think that they knew each other or worked together. Shakespeare was, however, a great admirer of Marlowe. Although tragedies in iambic pentameter had been written as early as Gorbuduc in 1561, Marlowe's mastery of poetic verse pushed the writing of tragic verse into a whole new dimension. Shakespeare acknowledged the debt he owed to Marlowe by occasionally quoting him or making allusions to his work. ( Full Answer )

Marlowe's life was full of controversy, and his death was violent and mysterious. Burbage and Shakespeare, on the other hand, let pretty calm uncontroversial lives. The only things close to controversy about them is when Burbage had his theatre taken down and moved across the river despite the objec…tions of his landlord, and when their theatre company put on Richard II at the behest of the Earl of Essex.

Possibly, for a short time. But basically Marlowe died before Shakespeare really got going as a playwright. Had Marlowe lived longer they would certainly have been rivals.
