Summary The potential of blank verse for drama was not truly recognized until Christopher Marlowe's Tamburlaine the Great. Many believe his innovation greatly influenced Shakespeare's work. It is Marlowe's later work, The tragical history of Dr. Faustus, that became his most celebrated. In writing Faust, Marlowe engaged the cultural and religious issues of the 16th century. This two-part program presents an innovative period interpretation of some of its most important scenes. In part one, Faust represents a pivotal change from the medieval to the Renaissance view of humans in control of their own destiny. Part two presents the play's last scenes including the magical appearance of Helen of Troy, Faustus' failed attempt to repent, and his final, tormented soliloquy.
