Maladie and Misanthrope are both excellent. I'm sure Marlowe would forgive you. :D

Marlowe - like - fav. "The Jew of Malta"

Jonson - like - fav. "Every Man in his Humour"

Kyd (isn't this how it's actually spelled) - like - fav. "The Spanish Tragedy".  
Kyd actually wrote "Hamlet" (also sometimes referred to as the "Ur-Hamlet") but it was lost and it is believed to be the model for Shakespeares's "Hamlet".

It's spelt variously. Kyd is the version encountered in Marlowe's arrest papers, etc. Sometimes it's spelt Kidd (Shakes had about six ways os writing his)
