This study examines the lives and works of three Elizabethan authors - John Lyly, Philip Sidney, and Robert [Illegible] - in order to trace an important transition in authorship at an historical moment in England. In sixteenth-century England poetry (in Sidney's inclusive sense of all fiction) was juvenilin - a youthful exercise that one gave up as one [Illegible] one's place in the world as a responsible adult. There was consequently something of a stigma to writing fiction as an adult, and the notion of a career as a writer of poetry or fiction was virtually inconceivable, It is the purpose of this study to suggest how such a career finally became conceivable at this historical moment by examining the ways each of these authors managed to negotiate a relationship to writing that enabled them to mature into adulthood, not only without relinquishing their writing, but actually by means of the self-[Illegible] and social interaction enabled by that writing.

Стр. 178 - Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath : for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I -will repay, saith the Lord. Therefore If thine enemy hunger, feed him ; if he thirst, give him drink : for in so doing thou sha.lt heap coals of fire on his head.
Стр. 90 - Which delivering forth also is not wholly imaginative, as we are wont to say by them that build castles in the air: but so far substantially it worketh, not only to make a Cyrus, which had been but a particular excellency, as Nature might have done, but to bestow a Cyrus upon the world, to make many Cyruses, if they will learn aright why and how that maker made him.
