Volume III. Renascence and Reformation.

XVI. Elizabethan Prose Fiction.

§ 12. Thomas Lodge.


Less interesting, because less tragic, is the personality of Thomas Lodge, who also was responsible for certain romances. During his Oxford days, he fell under Lyly’s influence, which accounts for the Euphuistic strain which pervades all his works. His restless, unsettled career was typical of his age. He began with law, took to literature, and ended as a medical man, while, from time to time, he indulged in lengthy cruises abroad. His first romance, Forbonius and Prisceria (1584), is a slight performance, and consists of a story of blighted affection, the subject of which seeks refuge in a pastoral life.   38
