A fortunate discovery in the Public Records Office has enabled Mark Williams Eccles to add several important and extremely interesting details to the little we already know about the years of Marlowe’s triumphs as the first great English dramatist. The documents concern a street fight in September 1589 between William Bradley and Christopher Marlowe, in which Marlowe’s friend, Thomas Watson, killed Bradley.

For such light every student of the Elizabethan period will be duly grateful.
