I am familiar with general statements of Satan's affinity with villains 
and heroes of Elizabethan and Jacobean tragic dramas (Richard III, 
Faustus, Macbeth, etc).  But I can't think of work specifically on 
Milton and Marlowe or more specifically on Satan and Tamburlaine.  Can 
anyone lend a hand?
