sendvictorious: As much as anything, Johnson's "Let bodies pile high in their thousands" has a weird Elizabethan ring to it, like a line from a Christopher Marlowe play. You expect it to have been followed with a "Forsooth" and a defiant waggle of his codpiece.

KiraIvy8: "It is a comfort to the wretched to have companions in misery." - Christopher Marlowe

SatisLocutus: Shakespeare coined the phrase "in a pickle" in 1611 Christopher Marlowe coined the phrase "clap those cheeks" in 1594. Now, you tell me who the REAL master of the English language is?

TBLS6: There is nothing new about this claim. The fact that a large proportion of the sonnets are addressed to a boy has been a source of study for years. Add to that some of his contemporaries were clearly gay (Christopher Marlowe, anyone?) and you have yourself an LGBTQ man!

BrynHarris6: Ditch St George's Day, celebrate Shakespeare's birthday instead, and just wait for the 'wel akshully's to tell us that Christopher Marlowe/the Earl of Oxford/Kehinde Andrews wrote the plays, actually.

LoveImperfectCo: Goodness is beauty in the best estate. — Christopher Marlowe

kleong: “I look over, and Christopher Marlowe is giving Mondale that ‘stop talking’ throat slash gesture thingy, but it’s too late.”

TheRealSPA: Scholars differ on the interpretation of this criticism, but most agree that it was Greene's way of saying Shakespeare was reaching above his rank, trying to match better known and educated playwrights like Christopher Marlowe, Thomas Nashe, or Greene himself.

TheRealSPA: Scholars and literary critics began to float names like Christopher Marlowe, Edward de Vere, and Francis Bacon — men of more known backgrounds, literary accreditation, or inspiration — as the true authors of the plays.

DDS_St_Cols: One of the early greats of Elizabethan drama was Christopher Marlowe. A controversial figure, possibly a spy, his plays such as 'Tamburlaine The Great' and 'Edward The Second' really pushed what could be done on stage, writing plays in verse. He is, perhaps, best known for...

Dorothy Parker Poem
Somebody's Song
 by Dorothy Parker

This is what I vow;
He shall have my heart to keep,
Sweetly will we stir and sleep,
All the years, as now.
Swift the measured sands may run;
Love like this is never done;
He and I are welded one:
This is what I vow.
