Tietoja tekijästä

Christopher Marlowe was born in Canterbury, England on February 6, 1564. He received a B.A. in 1584 and an M.A. in 1587 from Corpus Christi College, Cambridge. His original plans for a religious career were put aside when he decided to become a poet and playwright. His earliest work was translating näytä lisää Lucan and Ovid from Latin into English. He translated Vergil's Aeneid as a play. His plays included Tamburlaine the Great, Faustus, The Jew of Malta, and Dido, Queen of Carthage. His unfinished poem Hero and Leander was published in 1598. In 1589, he and a friend killed a man, but were acquitted on a plea of self-defense. His political views were unorthodox, and he was thought to be a government secret agent. He was arrested in May 1593 on a charge of atheism. He was killed in a brawl in a Deptford tavern on May 30, 1593. (Bowker Author Biography) näytä vähemmän

Elizabethan theatre's number two writer (after Shakespeare), Christopher Marlowe was an innovator who brought the blank verse to the stage. Marlowe is now best remembered for his plays, like Doctor Faustus and Tamburlaine, as well as his assassination at an early age, which may have been related to his working as a spy and which remains one of the big unsolved mysteries of the literary world.

Puisque je venais de lire le [Faust] de Goethe, je me suis dit que c’était le moment où jamais de lire cette version antérieure de quelques siècles du fameux mythe. Christopher Marlowe, l’enfant maudit du théâtre élisabéthain livre ici une pièce qui n’a pas dû être facile à monter tant elle regorge de scènes qui demandent de recourir à des « effets spéciaux » (un bel anachronisme que je fais ici, je pense…).
C’est un autre anachronisme que de la comparer à la version de Goethe qui lui est donc largement postérieure, mais l’ordre de ma lecture m’y a poussée, et on sent que le Faust de Christopher Marlowe est moins complexe que celui de Goethe, les scènes un peu bouffonnes trop nombreuses à mon goût, les références au contexte politique de l’époque plutôt amusantes. Mais le mythe est déjà là, les frictions entre religion et savoir, entre pouvoir et vouloir, entre damnation et rédemption sont toutes en place et commencent à se tendre.

S’il ne fallait lire qu’une des deux pièces, c’est celle de Goethe que je conseillerais, mais celle-ci est très intéressante d’un point de vue culturel, pour ce qu’elle dit d’une époque et d’un théâtre que l’on réduit trop souvent à la seule figure de Shakespeare et pour ce qu’elle montre de l’éclosion et de la maturation d’un mythe.

It is recognisable for its influence, and the "don't aspire beyond the human limits of knowledge" is a tale as old as time itself, but this still holds up magnificently, which I wasn't expecting.
A play written in blank verse with the theme of a repentant God, an unrepentant Devil, and a human having sold his soul to the latter in exchange for knowledge and relief from boredom sounds (and is) exciting. It helps that Marlowe keeps it simple, doesn't get too preachy, and fills up the gaps nicely even with a foregone conclusion.
TL;DR - don't sell your soul to the Devil, with a capital D - who would have guessed?

Darn couplets. Ugh. Rhyme, rhyme, rhyme--clang, clang, clang.

Marlowe's beginning was much better than Chapman's ending, but I guess Chapman grew on me.
