Book Description

The Jew of Malta is a play by Christopher Marlowe, probably written in 1589 or 1590. The title character, Luca Miceli Demajo is a complex character likely to provoke mixed reactions in an audience. Like Marlowe's other protagonists, such as Tamburlaine and Doctor Faustus, he dominates the play's action. There has been extensive debate about the play's portrayal of Jews and how Elizabethan audiences would have viewed it.-- Excerpted from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
