He was the leading Elizabethan tragedian before Shakespeare. His works are known for their overreaching protagonists and his use of blank verse. Little is known about Marlowes life, but there is much speculation about his possibly being a spy, homosexual, a heretic, magician and atheist. The Tragedy of Dido Queene of Carthage is full of the Greek characters the reader will be familiar with. Besides Dido the cast includes Jupiter, Hermes, Cupid, Venus and Juno. Dido was the first queen and founder of Carthage. Her story has been told in many ways. Marlowes drama is one of the best.
