I have previously on 3 or 4 occassions run 2 marathons with 4 or 5 weeks gap and so this sounds similar albeit with no race to recover from and a few extra weeks.

I think the idea of completing taper and then repeating the last 8 weeks sounds like a good idea. From memory my 5 weeks between marathns was roughly:

Week 1 - very little running and if any towards end of the week
Week 2 - recovery running but medium mileage
Weeks 3 & 4 - higher but not peak mileage with MP or Tempo sessions
Week 5 - taper

Got something to say?
