not my heart for naming of my Christ!” In fact, Christ probably could redeem him, even at this moment, if he truly repented and accepted the pains that the savior suffered on the cross, but he’s too much of a fleshly man to do that. C. As night falls, Faustus is doomed. The fact that he speaks alone on the stage is a daring dramatic move on Marlowe’s part, but the playwright’s powerful language carries the scene. D. Faustus’s last words are: “I’ll burn my books! Ah, Mephistophilis!” This message would have been particularly pertinent in a time when books had only recently become available. Books enabled people to teach themselves, as opposed to teaching coming from such institutions as universities or the Church. XI. The larger theme is that overreachers must die. We do not feel any satisfaction from Faustus’s eternal damnation; we admire his ambition, his God-defying rebellion against the sterile doctrines of old learning. Why, then, did Marlowe not celebrate Faustus’s rebellion? A. Quite simply, Marlowe could not end the play atheistically. At most, he could make us admire Faustus, then fall into line and concur that such overreaching must surely be punished. B. An outright glorying in Faustus’s antireligious, antiauthoritarian career would have brought down the apparatus of censorship to control Marlowe. Thus, he was obliged to end his play with the moralistic message that overreaching does not pay. H. What might Christopher Marlowe have achieved had he not been killed so young? 1. Shakespeare might well have had to tussle for the crown of England’s greatest dramatist. 2. What Marlowe left us is a small treasure trove of innovative early drama. He created some of the foundation stones on which the great edifice of Shakespearean drama would erect itself. Suggested Reading: Levin, The Overreacher. Marlowe, Complete Poems and Translations. Questions to Consider: XXXI. What, in terms of prosody, or verse mechanics, did Marlowe bequeath to his successors in drama? XXXII. How heretical, blasphemous, or atheistical is Marlowe’s drama, and how important is that element in our appreciation of his achievement? Dr. Faustus Questions 1.) Some characters speak in blank verse, some in prose, and some in both. How does Marlowe use prose and verse to underscore character and theme?

2. The medieval learning sequence was the trivium (grammar, rhetoric, and logic), followed by the quadrivium (arithmetic, geometry, music, and astronomy), both of which prepared the student for philosophy and theology/divinity. How many of these subjects does Faustus mention? Does he leave any out? 3. What according to Mephastophilis's first lines is the source of all magic? How does this affect our perception of everything that follows? 4. What is the purpose of the slapstick scenes featuring characters like Clown or the Horse Courser?
