His last known work and the only one to be written primarily in verse,The Woman in the Moonis among Lyly's most entertaining plays. Turning upon the construction of the female character, it has been read as highly misogynistic, and as a sixteenth-century feminist manifesto. Newly edited from the first edition (1601),The Woman in the Moonwill be of interest to all students of sixteenth-century drama. It is complemented by generous notes and commentary, as well as a full introduction and stage history.
