A Hundreth Sundrie Flowres

Front Cover
Clarendon Press, 2000 - Literary Criticism - 781 pages
This is the only edition of George Gascoigne's A Hundreth Sundrie Flowres to respect the integrity of the first edition, which he published as an anonymous anthology in 1573. Earlier editors either based their work on The Posies of George Gascoigne Esquire, self-censored and published in 1575, or omitted the two plays, Supposes and Jocasta. The critical apparatus of this edition allows the reader to reconstruct the changes Gascoigne made to The Posies, and all the works which appear there for the first time are included, and situates his works in their literary and social milieux.
