John Baker on Marlowe’s escape after his alleged death on May 30, 1593; Marlowe sails out of Deptford and arrives in Dover, where he probably meets intelligence operative Nicholas Faunt, who helps Marlowe escape to mainland Europe. Baker speculates that Marlowe eventually ends up in Italy.
Regarding Baker’s reference to Anthony Bacon: Anthony, erstwhile intelligence operative of Lord Burghley and Francis Walsingham and elder brother of Francis Bacon, was, by 1593, chief agent for the Earl of Essex.
