Abstract:

"This last known work and the only one to be written primarily in verse, The Woman in the Moon is among Lyly's most entertaining plays. Turning upon the construction of the female character, it has been read both as highly misogynistic and as a sixteenth-century feminsit manifesto." "The riddling nature of the central figure is only one of the many puzzles associated with the play. Its date of composition, the venue for which it was designed, and the company by which it was performed are all matters of dispute. In a detailed introduction Leah Scragg explores the play's many uncertainties and their significance in relation to the construction of Lyly's career." "Newly edited from the first edition (1601), The Woman in the Moon will be of interest to all students of sixteenth-century drama and of the construction of gender in the early modern period."--BOOK JACKET.
