One of my favourite authors,
This review is from: The Unfortunate Traveller and Other Works (English Library) (Paperback)
Most people will only ever read Thomas Nashe as part of a college or university course, and even then it will most likely be a brief mention. However he is well worth paying extra attention to. One of the bad boys of English Literature, Nashe fled London after a disasterous play written with Ben Jonson, for which he would have probably been imprisoned. The play unfortunately hasn't survived, however this book collects together the rest of his most important works, including plays, poetry and prose. It includes the wonderful Lenten Stuffe, which was written in praise of Great Yarmouth, where he went after leaving London, and mostly involves fish.
Well worth getting past his sometimes unconventional writing style for.
