Judgmental Point of View on Marlowe’s Doctor Faustus (1)
Author(s): Yahya Saleh Hasan Dahami
Abstract: The Elizabethan poet-dramatist Christopher Marlowe is one of the most distinguished literary figures who put a touchable print and significantly contributed to the English literature through various masterpieces such as The Tragical History of the Life and Death of Doctor Faustus. The main character is Doctor Faustus, who surpasses in many fields of learnings but unfortunately, he detours his track searching for unlimited power and influence. The paper attempts to shed light on some critical and condemnatory points of view on Elizabethan theater with particular reference to Doctor Faustus as a person of extravagant ambition, an experienced philosopher who rejects natural sciences to metaphysical powers. This task might be extended with more investigations to deal with the two broad points fully; the Elizabethan theater and Doctor Faustus. This study comes to an end with a concise summary as an initial conclusion.
