Summary Christopher Marlowe was an English dramatist, poet and translator of the Elizabethan era. Marlowe was the foremost Elizabethan tragedian until his mysterious early death. The first volume of his complete works brings together the works which were in some measure translations: Lucans First Booke, All Ovids Elegies, Dido Queene of Carthage, and Hero and Leander - three early works with one of the latest; and one play with three non-dramatic pieces. The volume is prefaced with an essay on 'Marlowe and Translation'. Each individual work also has its own introduction, containing both literary and textual comment and explanation. A new theory of the sequence and authority of the early editions underlies the texts of the Elegies; and Hero and Leander is for the first time presented in a critical edition without the additions of 1598, so that Marlowe's poem can now be properly evaluated
