1 Review
John Lyly's Euphues: The Anatomy of Wit and Euphues and his England, created a literary sensation in their own age, and had a profound influence on Elizabethan prose. This modern-spelling edition of the two parts of the work, is designed to allow the 21st century reader access to this culturally significant text. Attuned to the needs of both students and specialists, the text is edited from the earliest (complete) witnesses, richly annotated, and facilitates an understanding of Lyly's narrative technique by distinguishing typographically between narrative levels.
