Nov 10, 09

A poignant, atmospheric novel about the last days of the playwright Christopher Marlowe, who was killed in a brawl in a tavern in Deptford, probably assassinated in connection with spying activities. Burgess's language is rich and evocative as usual and nuanced to the Elizabethan style, and transports one back to the scenes and rumbustious, violent times.
