Drawing on early modern theories and uses of classical rhetoric, stage history, queer theory, historicist strategies and even magical realism, Marlowe's Soldiers investigates how and why Marlowe's plays make entertainment of a wealth of historically and geopolitically divergent fantasies about martial law and its discontents."--Jacket." ;
