Marlovian theory, Venus and Adonis, and the Shakespeare authorship question
This project takes a critical look at the existing research for and against the concept of Marlovian Theory and argues for Marlowe’s guise as William Shakespeare in later life. This argument is drawn from not only expert, outside scholarship, but also involves a close examination of Marlovian and Shakespearian texts, specifically Venus and Adonis, and strives to prove that it was, in fact, Marlowe who composed this epic poem. This project also acknowledges the fact that despite what some might consider definitive proof in favor of Marlovian Theory, the Shakespearian authorship question will always remain.
