Abstract

Christopher Marlowe manipulated the characters, their speeches and the events of Tamburlaine I and II so that the immoral or unorthodox behavior of Tamburlaine seems less offensive than it otherwise might have. Marlow probably discouraged his audiences from taking strong offense at Tamburlaine's religious unorthodoxies.
