Lyly, John (15531606)

Lyly, John, English dramatist, born in Kent; was the author of nine plays on classical subjects, written for the court, which were preceded in 1579 by his once famous “Euphues, or Anatomy of Wit,” followed by a second part next year, and entitled “Euphues and his England,” and that from the fantastic, pompous, and affected style in which they were written gave a new word, Euphuism, to the English language (15531606).
