Something in Christopher Silvester's book puts me in mind of my brief spell by the banks of the Isis. Most obviously there is the substantial bias in this collection against the recent or the contemporary. Picking two chapters at random - "Arrivals and Departures" and "Great and Terrible Occasions" - there were 15 gobbets dealing with events in the half-century 1800-1850, 13 for 1850-1900, 16 for 1900 - 1945 and only eight for the half-century between 1945 and the present day.

Christopher Marlowe, Elizabethan poet and Shakespeare’s most important predecessor in English drama, who is noted especially for his establishment of dramatic blank verse. Marlowe was the second child and eldest son of John Marlowe, a Canterbury shoemaker. Thank you for your feedback.
The edges are periodically tinkered with, admitting women members, changing the sitting hours, finding a lot of new committees to occupy the time of unemployable backbenchers. But the essential qualities of the place don't change from one decade to the next, or, on the evidence of this anthology, one century to the next
The Cambridge Companion to Christopher Marlowe provides a full introduction to this famed pioneer of both the Elizabethan stage and modern English poetry. The volume also considers the religious, political, courtly, and literary contexts of Marlowe's authorship, his presence in modern film and theatre, and his influence on subsequent writers.
