Christopher Marlowe Christopher Marlowe contributed greatly to English literature He adapted blank verse to the stage His short life was violent and he had a rather violent temperment However he wrote some of the most delicate pieces of literature His writing expresses the representation of the spirit of the Elizabethan literature in his attitude towards religion and his choice of writing style 31 Norman Christopher Marlowe was born on February 6 1564 to a Canterbury to a shoemaker He was bapitzed at St Georges church on the 26th of February He was the eldest son of John Marlowe of the Shoemakers Guild and Katherine Arthur a Dover girl of yeoman stock Henderson 275 He attended school at Kings School in Canterbury and Corpus Christi College in Camberidge His violent nature often got him in trouble with the law Marlowes parish was St George and it had about 208 communicants in 1569 This parish was dominated by landmarks Christopher Marlowe ranks as one of Canterburys most distinguished boy at birth but there were many others who were to be well known by letters or actions 21 Henderson Marlowe was a scholar at Kings School He attended a small school but the education he received was remarkable It seems he may have attended a private school before he attended Kings School but it is not certain 40 Urry The reason it is not certain is because the fee to attend a private school would have been too much for the Marlowes to afford It is likely that a charity or patronage may have paid the fee as it did for many of the Marlowes neighbords 42 Urry Scholars such as Marlowe were allowed a 4 allowance By the time others students than scholars received a payment Marlowe had already left for Camberidge 44 Urry For his allowance Marlowe worked a long hard day at school He started his morning at six oclock and ended thirteen hours
