Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 059534402X, Paperback)

The Tragedy of Doctor Gnosis reveals that even the most learned of men can fall prey to the desires for love and superficial beauty. Author Steve Cirrone reveals his passion for Renaissance drama in his first full-length play. A modern interpretation of Christopher Marlowe's Doctor Faustas, Cirrone's work carefully adheres to the dramatic principles of the Renaissance period. Skillfully crafted, the language and literary devices used throughout the text reflect the dynamics of dramatists writing during the Elizabethan era.The Tragedy of Doctor Gnosis explores the force of cosmic destiny in the world today by compelling us to examine the human desire for everlasting life against modern concepts of love, superficial beauty, and the divine. As in Marlowe's play, the central conflict in The Tragedy of Doctor Gnosis shows us that self-delusion mixed with exorbitant pride can lead to one's tragic end. The play's powerful drama is rooted in the protagonist's absolute devotion to a young lover-despite its cost to his reputation and his life.The Tragedy of Doctor Gnosis challenges readers and audiences alike to think deeply about consequences when boundaries between self and the divine are erased by a misguided will.
