Euphues: the anatomy of wit; Euphues & his England by John Lyly( Book )
192 editions published between 1579 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,293 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

Galatea by John Lyly( Book )
9 editions published between 2000 and 2012 in English and held by 319 libraries worldwide
"Galatea and Midas are two of John Lyly's most engaging plays. Galatea (or Gallathea) and Phillida are dressed up in male clothes by their fathers so that they can avoid the requirement of the god Neptune that every year 'the fairest and chastest virgin in all the country' be sacrificed to a sea-monster. Hiding together in the forest, the two maidens fall in love, each supposing the other to be a young man. This leads to delightful complications that remind us of the mix-ups in Shakespeare's romantic comedies. Galatea has become the subject of considerable feminist critical study in recent years." "Midas (1590) uses mythology in quite a different way, dramatising two stories about King Midas (the golden touch and the ass's ears) in such a way as to fashion a satire of King Philip of Spain (and of any tyrant like him) for colossal greediness and folly. In the wake of the defeat of Philip's Armada fleet and its attempted invasion of England in 1588, this satire was calculated to win the approval of Queen Elizabeth and her court."--Jacket
