Euphues: the anatomy of wit : Euphues & his England by John Lyly( Book )

88 editions published between 1868 and 1997 in 3 languages and held by 561 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"John Lyly's Euphues: The Anatomy of Wit and Euphues and his England, created a literary sensation in their own time and had a profound influence on Elizabethan prose. This modern spelling edition of the two works, the first for nearly a century, is designed to allow the twenty-first century reader access to this culturally significant text and to explore the fascination that it exerted." "Attuned to the needs of both students and specialists, the text is edited from the earliest complete witnesses, is richly annotated, and facilitates an understanding of Lyly's narrative technique by distinguishing typographically between narrative levels. Euphues' Latin poem in praise of Elizabeth I is translated for the first time, and discussed in an appendix." "Of primary importance for students of Renaissance prose, this edition complements the on-going publication of Lyly's dramatic works in The Revels Plays. The introduction includes a discussion of the relationship between the dramatic and non-dramatic work locating Lyly's plays in a wider context."--Jacket

Since 1965 Geoffrey Shepherd's edition of the Apology has been the standard, and this revision of Shepherd's edition, with a new introduction and extensive notes, is designed to introduce Sidney's best-known work to a new generation of readers at the beginning of thetwenty-first century.Unfamiliar words and phrases are glossed, classical and other references explained, and difficult passages analysed in detail.
