2 February 26th, 1564 Education: King’s School, Cambridge, Corpus Christi College Wrote plays for public in London Never married Secret agent? HIS LIFE

3 Less than six years Controversial themes; manuscripts were heavily edited Heavily influenced Shakespeare “violent sensational fiction” BAD BOY of Elizabethan era The Tragicall History of Doctor Faustus HIS WORK

4 The Massacre at Paris Dido, Queen of Carthage Doctor Faustus Edward II The Jew of Malta Tamburlaine LIST OF WORKS

5 Ah Faustus, Now hast thou but one bare hour to live, And then thou must be damned perpetually.... The stars move still, time runs, the clock will strike, The devil will come, and Faustus must be damned. O I’ll leap up to my God! Who pulls me down? See, see where Christ’s blood streams in the firmament! One drop would save my soul, half a drop: ah my Christ— Ah, rend not my heart for naming of my Christ; Yet will I call on him—O spare me, Lucifer!... Earth, gape! O no, it will not harbor me. You stars that reigned at my nativity, Whose influence hath allotted death and hell, Now draw up Faustus like a foggy mist Into the entrails of yon laboring cloud, That when you vomit forth into the air My limbs may issue from your smoky mouths, So that my soul may but ascend to heaven.... O God, if thou wilt not have mercy on my soul,... Let Faustus live in hell a thousand years, A hundred thousand, and at last be saved.... Cursed be the parents that engendered me: No, Faustus, curse thy self, curse Lucifer, That hath deprived thee of the joys of heaven.... My God, my God, look not so fierce on me!... Ugly hell gape not! Come not, Lucifer! I’ll burn my books—ah, Mephastophilis! (13.57–113) EXCERPT FROM DOCTOR FAUSTUS
