Publisher ROGER DEAN PUBL CO
From a poem written by English poet Christopher Marlowe, which was published in 1599, six years after the poet's death. The poem is considered one of the earliest examples of the pastoral style of British poetry in the late Renaissance period. With dense layers and enmeshed tonality, this piece is both technical and stylistic.
