Summary :

Marlowe's Jew of Malta must be reckoned one of the most imaginative creations of Elizabethan drama, without known sources or antecedents either for the main events of the plot, or for its protagonist Barabas. Probably written in the late 1580s or early 1590s, it was highly popular in its day and clearly influenced Shakespeare's depiction of Shylock
