Unfortunately, a woman tends to assume her man is fully aware of her pain — she also assumes he knows precisely how he caused it, which means he should also know how to fix it. He also knows that every time he tries to kiss or hold her, she responds frigidly. Either way, you can pretty much bank on fantastic makeup sex later on.

It consequently seems more likely that these plays are omitted from Deats' thesis because she does not know how to include them; because superficially at least they do not seem to challenge the notions of masculine and martial power which the rest of her book seeks to overturn. Deats' methodological introduction occupies almost the same amount of space as her considerations of the plays. Although each play is dealt with separately the chapters are held together by Deats' thesis which is successively reinforced through her readings.
The chapter about Dido argues that Marlowe's rendering of Virgil's story focuses on the reversal of "norms of gendered behavior, gender principles, and sexuality" in order to highlight "the arbitrariness and constructedness of societal concepts of individual gender" Similarly Deats reads the two parts of Tamburlaine as a challenge to the military might their protagonist comes to embody.
Robbing the Scythian shepherd of centre stage in favour of two minor characters, Calyphas and Olympia, Deats argues that Part II sees the diminution of Tamburlaine's power in the face of feminine rebellion. She characterizes Calyphas, the boy who denies the martial life of his father in favour of wine, women and cards, not as a cowardly hedonist, but as a champion of feminine resistance. In turn, Deats reads Olympia's act of infanticide as a contrast rather than a parallel to Tamburlaine's murder of Calyphas. She maintains: "Olympia dispatches her son to protect him from the merciless military code that Tamburlaine would foist upon his reluctant offspring" Deats' consideration of Edward II is probably the least successful.
Having argued that Gaveston is a femme fatale in everything but his sex, Deats gets sidetracked by historical comparisons between Edward and James VI of Scotland and Mary, Queen of Scots. This seems to be one of the few instances when Deats' anxiety about making her work historically specific overrides her primary objective to provide theoretically valid readings of Marlowe's canon. Deats concludes her work with a reading of Faustus which begins by pointing out how few "real" women there are in the play; Helen of Troy is a spirit, while the duchess and the hostess are minor characters.
This lack of women suggests to Deats that the play is concerned with showing how Dr Faustus has to eschew the feminine aspects of himself in order to achieve worldly greatness Deats concludes that the drama depicts the triumph of masculine subjectivity at the expense of feminine attributes and that the world thereby created is hell. In conclusion Deats' study is doubly useful; it simultaneously offers students of early modern culture an excellent summary of poststructuralist theory and a series of original and thought-provoking readings of five of Marlowe's plays.
