Description:

Using two plays, Christopher Marlowe's "Doctor Faustus" and John Webster's "The Duchess of Malfi," the paper explores the theater genres of the Elizabethan and Jacobean periods. Through Marlowe's play, the paper explores Elizabethan theater and through Webster's play it studies Jacobean theater. The genres are looked at in the context of being considered the beginnings of the Renaissance and a shift from the Medieval period to a more human-centered view of the universe.

From the Paper:

"The plays Doctor Faustus by Christopher Marlowe and The Duchess of Malfi John Webster are both from one of the most productive eras in British drama, the period covering the Elizabethan theater and the Jacobean theater that followed. This period can also be considered the beginnings of the Renaissance and so a shift from the Medieval period to a more human-centered view of the universe."
