"You touched on a very important point early in your essay -- the difference between comic relief and liberal use of comedy. This strengthens your essay from the beginning, and you develop your ideas in relation to this consideration well.
There are a couple of things that can tighten up your arguments and improve readability. First, you reference "the paper" several times without first identifying what that paper is. You also present the opinions in that paper as fact. For example, you mention that there is some disagreement about whether Marlowe authored the entire play. You present an argument from Steane, then treat Steane's conclusion as a concrete fact. This is a big topic that could be the subject of its own paper, and it might serve your paper to leave it out entirely. Otherwise, it will be necessary to leave the question of authorship open to speculation as the matter hasn't been decided or soundly supported in this essay.
In your supporting paragraphs, you provide summaries of the narrative and identify Marlowe's intentions, but you often stray away from the central question of what role comedy is serving in these instances. Make sure each supporting paragraph is reinforcing your thesis statement in some direct way."
