    One thought on “Tamburlaine Must Die”

    1. I m not at all sure what I think of this one It was recommended to me as part of a challenge as probably not being my usual thing, but it s not too far off, really I mean, I ve got Bruce Holsinger s A Burnable Book on the go, and that involves Chaucer and Gower Anyway, I think I might have appreciated this if I could remember about Kit Marlowe s death Pretty much all I could remember was the line from Shakespeare, a great reckoning in a little room , thought to refer to Marlowe s death for bon [...]

    2. It took me a bit longer to finish this short novel by Louise Welsh than I initially intended A few busy days and some emotional turmoil mainly due by the contemporary reading of Adam Silvera s History Is All You Left Me later, I did manage to complete Tamburlaine Must Die and I must say I deeply enjoyed it.The novel is set in the dangerous and seedy London underworld of 1593 and focuses on playwright Christopher Marlowe s hunt for the mysterious nemesis who threatens his life and calls himself T [...]

    3. In Tamburlaine Must Die, Louise Welsh brings to life a noisy, dirty, chaotic Elizabethan London In her reimagining of Christopher Marlowe s last days, he becomes a noir ish detective, forced to investigate who is setting him up to hang for heresy Welsh s writing is beautiful without being distractingly poetic, and she evokes the language of day without making her text dense or unreadable The central storyline is a little too conspiracy theory esque for my taste, but the characters are well drawn [...]

    4. My consumption of fictional accounts of the exciting life of Christopher Marlow or Marly or Morley or Marle as every writer must point out again and again continues Somewhat unsuccessfully this time.This is dreadful Elizabethan and contemporary turns of phrase rub up awkwardly against one another You don t have to write like an actual Elizabethan to make the prose feel authentic, but there is a way to blend Elizabethan language and syntax with something a modern reader won t be too alienated by [...]

    5. Although this is a small book 150 pages , I found it fascinating I know nothing of Christopher Marlowe so all the information was new to me Others might find the story boring, but it s prompted me to read about and by Marlowe.

    6. Playwright, poet, and spy Christopher Marlowe is a man who doesn t much care about the consequences of anything that he does He s dissolute, reckless and playing a dangerous game London is a grimy, insular, frightened place with the plague and war threatening, strangers are treated with great suspicion and the shadowy Privy Council run by Ministers who cared enough for high office to profit from death.The story begins in May 1593 when Marlowe is summoned from the home of his patron to appear bef [...]

    7. Sadly, this book ended up being quite disappointing It has such a fascinating and exciting premise what happened in the final 72 hours of Christopher Marlowe s life , but she rushes through the entire story, not giving it time to properly grow and mature While I did enjoy the character she created for Marlowe, he generally felt fairly flat With so little time for the story to develop, it is no surprise that the characters don t either None of the other characters have any fleshing out at all We [...]

    8. A very poorly written novella set in the last days of Christopher Marlowe he is involved in various privy council faction plots and in particular betrayed by his lead actor and ex lover in a plot against Raleigh and is then offered a deal by Dee that if he sacrifices himself then he and Raleigh will ensure his literary immortality.

    9. Im sorting out my bookshelf and this book popped out I read this in 2004 I loved this book dearly at the time And it still is one of my favourite books.

    10. Well that s another book read An odd sort of mix, I have read I think better attempts at elizabethan english Why I found myself wondering, use the archaic spelling skry, but say that Walshingham slept with Marlow rather than lay with him.There are always inconsistancies in these things though, and the flouridity of the style seemed most suitable return return I have never read any Marlow Though occasional paraphrases would bring quotes to mind And this is Hell nor am I out of it for example, bef [...]

    11. Good den, fair gentles Tis I, the protagonist, Christopher Marlowe The first line of my account reads I have four candles and one evening in which to write this account Of course I was able to scrawl down a 150 page novella in a few scant hours My writing throughout the narrative is good Actually, it s fantastic My descriptions are visceral, cold, dramatic, and done with great style But watch out for the first few pages I use a lot of sentences like So it proved and when it seemed my degree migh [...]

    13. This short novel was written as a fictional account by Marlowe of what is to prove his final three days of life Welsh has attempted to capture the essence of Elizabethan English rather than reproduce it and I felt that she had done an excellent job of this as well as conveying a sense of Marlowe s intellectual pride and poetic nature She has speculated on the events that led to his death in Deptford drawing on primary and secondary sources, though given that it is a first person account she avoi [...]

    14. The murder of Elizabethan playwright and spy Christopher Marlowe is one of those true historical mysteries about which we ll most likely never know the full truth In this atmospheric and gripping novella, Welsh reimagines Marlowe s final days as recorded in his own hand, the night before his death The rich, densely woven narrative, skillfull writing and expertly realized setting easily kept me glued to the page all the way through.

    15. I see this one gets given quite a large amount of stars by most people Maybe the Dutch translation just sucks, but I doubt that s it I didn t think there was anything wrong with the wording or sentences I just really did not enjoy the story at all Glad it was so short and cheap I think I paid 30 cents.

    16. One of my all time favorite books, with a fascinating subject and concise, atmospheric prose that is almost unparalleled Read my revised review here drchazan 2015 0

    17. An odd novella fictionalising the last three days of Marlowe s life, embellished with assassination plots and romance lust The book s redeeming feature is it s great characterisation of Elizabethan London, especially it s shadier spots, presenting a bustling city where the dynamic underworld is matched in immorality by the xenophobia of the bustling overworld The city is populated with all the famous Elizabethan figures from Raleigh to Dee, and I enjoyed Welsh s imagining of the backstory betwee [...]

    18. This novel packs a powerful punch It follows renowned Elizabethan dramatist Christopher Marlow through his final days, unravelling a mystery that has lived on in popular imagination as surely as any of his plays His own creation, Tamburlaine, has been used against Marlow in an attempt to publicly destroy a blasphemer and suspected atheist At no point does Christopher Marlow shy from his fate in fact, his joie de vivre leads him to extraordinary carelessness with regard to his own life in a manne [...]

    19. I borrowed this short historical novel from my University library, which is incidentally the same institution at which Louise Welsh works as a lecturer I very much enjoyed my first foray into her crime novels in the shape of The Girl on the Stairs, but wasn t as enamoured with her well received debut, The Cutting Room.Told from the perspective of playwright Christopher Marlowe, Tamburlaine Must Die is well written, and certainly has a good grasp upon antiquated language and dialogue It did feel [...]

    20. Interesting Certainly readable But something about it irked me the whole way through, which I couldn t quite put my finger on I was a little disappointed really, I had hoped it was going to be much better I do wish it had been longer, allowing the plot to simmer a bit, and the characters to fill out I think would have made for a great read if it was lengthier.

    21. Short and fascinating I love books that take historical facts and imagine the story that makes them to such a persuasive degree that you start to take it as truth.

    22. This novel is the story of Christopher Marlowe s final three days, told as if it was his journal It s a story to easily get lost in, even if it s less than 150 pages long.

    23. I didn t enjoy it as much as I did Naming the bones but nevertheless a good read and historically informative.

    24. This would get a four and half from me if that was allowed I loved it, it was a real treat to read such atmospheric and poetic writing It conjured up Elizabethan London in a refreshing warts and all kind of a way, the stinks and mire, sex and lust, the physicality, terror and brutality I normally avoid historical fiction like the plague pun intended as it s so often grating and twee this ain t It was totally transporting, realistic and tawdry I enjoyed the scenes in the book stalls around St Pau [...]

    25. This novella is certainly a departure from the genre and style of Welsh s first book, her novel The Cutting Room, a contemporary or less crime tale set in Glasgow The time here is London in 1593 and we are reading Christopher Marlowe s account of his past few days, written in case he does not survive the morrow Drawn before the Privy Council to answer charges of blasphemy and atheism someone has been disseminating leaflets of this nature as written by Tamburlaine and naturally this is assumed t [...]

    26. In some parts, this is an enthralling evocation of the seedier side of Elizabethan London, featuring an intriguingly flawed central character, the doomed playwright Christopher Marlowe However, the novella left me unsatisfied perhaps for the simple reason that, being a novella, it was too short to convincingly flesh out the plot or provide other possible culprits.My feeling of dissatisfaction began upon reading the very first page Welsh frames the story through the rather tired literary conceit [...]

    27. Het mysterie van Marlowe is een geschrift vanuit het oogpunt van Marlowe wat hij opschrijft als hij bang is dat het laatste uur voor hem heeft geslagen In dit boekje, wat leest als een hele lange brief, beschrijft hij de gebeurtenissen die tot een arrestatie van de privy council leiden, maar het allerbelangrijkste hij opent de zoektocht naar wie hem verlinkt of verraden heeft Uiteindelijk is dit een ander complottheorie van de schrijfster over het einde van het leven van Marlowe.Het verhaal is a [...]

    28. Not much is really known about the circumstances that surround the death of Christopher Marlowe We know how he died and who he was with at the time, but was it a drunken brawl that ended tragically, was it murder, plotted and planned Nothing in the history books is conclusive.Louise Welsh s novella it s not really long enough to be a fully fledged novel is based on the last few days of his life and tries to put a voice to him and give background to what happened It kind of works You do get a fee [...]
