“`The Oxford University Press announced that Christopher Marlowe will be credited as a co-author on a number of  William Shakespeare’s works in the latest edition of the master’s complete works. It’s been a much-debated topic among many researchers, professors, and literary connoisseurs.                                   CHRISTOPHER MARLOWE –>

“`Marlowe was another playwright who penned during the Elizabethan period. Some think his reputation would have trumped Shakespeare if he had lived long enough. He was only 29 when he died. For a time, it was thought that Marlowe was Shakespeare, although the premise has long been dismissed.

“`Now, Marlowe is being credited as a co-author on the first three parts of Henry VI. Since the 18th century, these particular works have been thought to have a different scribe, or at least, a co-author working with Shakespeare. Some have suggested George Peele or Robert Greene; but, Marlowe now seems to be the best fit.

“`This announcement was based on years of research done in a couple of different studies, including an essay written by Gary Taylor of Florida State University, a contributor to the latest Oxford edition of Shakespeare’s works. New tools for analyzing text have added to a confidence in the decision to credit Marlowe.  Many experts believe up to 17 of the master’s plays contain work by other authors.

“`Nobody actually knows whether Marlowe and Shakespeare worked together in person. He may have been hired to write certain scenes, based on his strengths after William wrote the outline. Or, he may have met with Shakespeare to work out the details of the play.

“`Just because Oxford publishes it does not mean there are not any critics of the analysis. Marlowe’s involvement in writing Henry VI remains an assumption; an educated one. And, the  Oxford University Press has previously made other bold statements about unknown authorship. There are plenty of scholars who disagree. The conspiracy continues…
