The 24-page publication has been printed as an A5 booklet with many colour images. The Guide covers each key phase of Marlowe’s life, including growing up in Canterbury, his time at Cambridge University, working as a goverment spy, arriving as a London playwright, and his death in Deptford. It also contains sections on each of his major plays, and provides an overview of his non-dramatic poetry as well.

The Guide is currently being updated and will be available again in the near future. Further details can be found in the Marlowe Guide section.

Society Newsletter

Published twice a year in the Spring and the Autumn until 2015, the Marlowe Society Newsletter (latterly renamed the Marlowe Society Journal) contained shorter articles on a wide range of subjects relating to Marlowe, Elizabethan and Jacobean drama, as well as wider issues such as the Shakespearean Authorship debate.

Each issue also included news items of interest, reported on the latest work of the Society and forthcoming events, and also publishes reviews by Society members of books and play performances.

Peruse the Marlowe Society Newsletters section, which has more information, including Contents listings of past issues.

Research Journal

The Marlowe Society Research Journal was the forum for lengthier and more detailed research articles contributed by scholars, academics and Society members. The first four Journals were printed publications, whilst subsequent research articles were published online until 2013.

As with the Newsletter, the Journal represented the broad spectrum of opinion on Marlowe’s life and work, and articles also covered related aspects of contemporary drama and literature, as well as some of the more hotly debated topics such as the suspicious circumstances surrounding Marlowe’s reported death in Deptford, and the Shakespearean Authorship question.
