    The Tragedy of Dido Queene of Carthage

    by Christopher Marlowe

    Book Description

    Christopher Marlowe was a 16th century English playwright. He was the leading Elizabethan tragedian before Shakespeare. His works are known for their overreaching protagonists and his use of blank verse. Little is known about Marlowe's life, but there is much speculation about his possibly being a spy, homosexual, a heretic, magician and atheist. The Tragedy of Dido Queene of Carthage is full of the Greek characters the reader will be familiar with. Besides Dido the cast includes Jupiter, Hermes, Cupid, Venus and Juno. Dido was the first queen and founder of Carthage. Her story has been told in many ways. Marlowe's drama is one of the best.
