"The Passionate Shepherd to His Love" by Christopher Marlowe Read this for the first time as a senior in high school. I still get the same feeling now that I did back when I first read it. My absolute favorite love poem.
Christopher Marlowe - was an English dramatist, poet and translator of the Elizabethan era. He greatly influenced William Shakespeare, who rose to become the pre-eminent Elizabethan playwright after Marlowe’s mysterious early death.
