any who, I was looking at the lists of prompts that were given for Beauvoir and Conrad and number five instantly grabbed me “is Marlowe racist” I didn’t realize we would have the option of writing about Christopher Marlowe, how exciting. I will say briefly that Marlowe could be conceived as racist because all the characters are white and as typical in this time period whenever something is described as negative it is also black (i.e Othello) and don’t forget there is a play called the Jew of Malta. But does that make Marlowe racist or simply a product of his time like our friend Isabella Thorpe – that is up to you!
