The very belated second half round up of 2013 may have to wait. 2014 has begun with a flurry of activity around the release of the US paperback, including my first articles for the Huffington Post. The first, 7 Brilliant Writers Who Were Overshadowed by a Contemporary was quite a hit, with over 900 social media shares to date, and the usual flurry of comments from people who would have written it differently. This week, a post dearer to my heart: the question of whether Christopher Marlowe might have faked his death. I mention in that article about Shakespeare’s obsession with false death and resurrection: thirty-three characters in eighteen Shakespeare plays are wrongly thought dead for anything from a few seconds to almost the whole of the action, and seven of those deaths are deliberately faked. I thought I’d put the full list up here for anyone who is interested.
