The reckoning : the murder of Christopher Marlowe by Charles Nicholl ( Book )
26 editions published between 1991 and 2002 in English and held by 1,474 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In 1593 the brilliant and controversial young playwright Christopher Marlowe was stabbed to death in a Deptford lodging-house. The circumstances were shady, the official account - a violent quarrel over the bill, or "recknynge"--Long regarded as dubious." "The Reckoning is the first full-length investigation of the killing, tracing Marlowe's shadowy political dealings, his involvement in covert intelligence work, and the charges of heresy and homosexuality against him. There is critical new evidence about his three companions on that last day in Deptford and about the sinister role of the informer, Richard Baines. More important, The Reckoning is an enthralling revelation of the extraordinary underworld of Elizabethan crime and espionage, a "secret theater" in which nearly every historical figure familiar to us, from hack poet to Queen's high minister, seems to have played a part. Here, in a tour de force of precise scholarship and dazzling ingenuity, Charles Nicholl penetrates four centuries of obscurity to reveal not only a complex and unsettling story of entrapment and betrayal, chimerical plot and sordid felonies, but also a fascinating vision of the underside of an entire culture."--Jacket

"In 1612, Shakespeare gave evidence in a court case at Westminster - and it is the only occasion on which his actual spoken, words, were recorded. The case seems routine - a dispute over an unpaid marriage dowry - but it opens an unexpected window into the dramatist's famously obscure life story. Some eight years earlier, we learn, Shakespeare was lodging in the house of a French immigrant family, the Mountjoys, in the Cripplegate area of London. While there he was called on by his landlady to "persuade" the family's former apprentice to marry their daughter." "Charles Nicholl applies a powerful biographical magnifying glass to this fascinating but little-known episode in Shakespeare's life

"A highly readable and authoritative account of Walter Raleigh's failed expedition up the Orinoco river to find the fabled El Dorado in mid-1595. Based largely on first-hand accounts such as the Raleigh's own The Discoverie of Guiana, Francis Sparry's testimony, and the author's retracing of Raleigh's route, the book not only recounts the expedition itself but also explicates the cultural myth of El Dorado that animated explorers and conquerors like Raleigh and the Spaniard Antonio de Berrío"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58
