Christopher Marlowe's Poems

Memorial window in Poets' Corner

In July 2002, a memorial window to Marlowe – a gift of the Marlowe Society[72] – was unveiled in Poets' Corner in Westminster Abbey. Controversially, a question mark was added to the generally accepted date of death.[73] On 25 October 2011 a letter from Paul Edmondson and Stanley Wells was published by The Times newspaper, in which they called on the Dean and Chapter to remove the question mark on the grounds that it "flew in the face of a mass of unimpugnable evidence".[74] In 2012, they renewed this call in their e-book Shakespeare Bites Back, adding that it "denies history",[75] and again the following year in their book Shakespeare Beyond Doubt.[76]
