Marston, John

 

Born circa 1576 in Coventry; died June 25, 1634, in London. English poet and playwright.

Marston graduated from Oxford University. His first works were burned by order of church authorities. In 1605 he collaborated with B. Jonson and G. Chapman on the satirical comedy Eastward Ho, for which the authors were subsequently arrested. Marston’s tragedies, such as Antonio and Mellida (1599) and Antonio’s Revenge (1602), are noted for their complicated plots and intense passion. They are characteristic of late Renaissance drama.
