"Although Marlowe’s play Doctor Faustus ends with the protagonist’s supposed damnation - he has sold his soul to the Devil in exchange for forbidden knowledge - the scholar-necromancer is really a hero to Marlowe, whose conquests of knowledge, like Tamburlaine’s conquests of territory in Marlowe’s other (two-part) hit play, wowed audiences in the 1590s with their picture of moral defiance. Marlowe no more expects his audience to succumb to a Christian or moral view of the world, having seen the downfall of Doctor Faustus, than the fans of 1970s rock bands would be deterred from a wild way of life by one of their idols taking an overdose or dying a violent death. The terrible end is part of the daredevil thrill."

A.N. Wilson - The Elizabethans

Just in case you were unaware that Kit Marlowe was really cool.

god damn curtain fell down a while ago and every time I try to put it back up it falls down again immediately. Like it doesn’t stay at all. It’s been a piece of crap since I moved in but now it’s totally nonfunctional and I do not like that about it. Stupid god damn useless nonsense

Alexander Siddig is in this play! I recognise him. From Tumblr. Fella’s got a nice beard now

I’m doing a late shift at work & there’s a new play on. Explosions keep happening
