Katharine Wilson

Oxford English Monographs

  • The book focuses on the cross-over between high and low literary culture in the late Elizabethan period, as expressed in the prose fictions of John Lyly, Robert Greene, and Thomas Lodge.

  • Wilson shows how the prose fictions of Lyly, Greene, and Lodge form an important part of the history of the novel.
