CHRISTOPHER MARLOWE’S HENRY by James Lewis Huss

£5.00

Christopher Marlowe’s Henry is a mock Renaissance tragedy in blank verse based on Henry Fitzroy, bastard son of Henry VIII and one-time contender for the throne of England. A comedy in five acts, Henry is a drama about Fitzroy’s final years, from age 15 when he was married to age 17 when he died, never once consummating his marriage. A greater tragedy has yet to be written.
