Summary of thesis My research interests gravitate around the question of epic heroism, in particular around those thematic, stylistic and rhetorical expressions heroism assumes in the literary production of Christopher Marlowe (1564 - 1593). Taking into consideration a group of literary figures – identified by general criticism as “tragic heroes” – I have already attempted to explore the theme of heroism through my undergraduate dissertation. At the moment, I am still trying to investigate the subject individually, mainly concentrating on the revolutionary language of Elizabethan and Jacobean authors, and on the way in which Christopher Marlowe came to formulate his own heroic literary “I” within the emerging discourse of authorial roles.
