Royal authority and erotic desires: Marlowe's views on kingship in Dido, Queen of Carthage, and Edward II focuses on the works of Christopher Marlowe and how they correlate to his perceptions of the Elizabethan court. This essay is meant to serve as one potential interpretation of both the public and personal life of Christopher Marlowe. Though there is little concrete information on Marlowe's life, it is a fact that he was working for the Elizabethan court in some capacity as an informant and potential provocateur against Catholics in England.
I would like to thank my thesis director Bryan Hampton as well as my committee members Andrew McCarthy and Kristine Whorton. Their guidance and encouragement throughout this process has been so valuable to me. I'd like to thank my educators for fostering a desire to be better at everything I do. I'd like to thank my grandmother, Norine Bolt for being the first person to encourage me to pursue a future in writing, and I would also like to thank my mother, Melissa Ward, for being a reader like me and for always making time to read anything that I wrote, no matter how bad it was. Lastly, I would like to thank my stepdad, Chris Ward, and my older brother, Chase Lambert, for always pushing me to be better than I was before. Thank you all so much.
