"A lively, lyrical, amorous [collection].... [Pigman] steers his course with assurance and even aplomb [and] offers a detailed and illuminating commentary on the text, its allusions, echoes, sources, and keys to interpretation, as well as providing useful indexes and a glossary.... If anything deserves to bring George Gascoigne back into the spotlight of serious attention, it is this judicious and scholarly edition. Clearly the result of some years of thoughtful preparation and research, [it] is a worthy addition to the Oxford English Authors series and is a reminder of just how valuable responsible editing can be."--Times Literary Supplement

"This edition is the best piece of luck Gascoigne has had in the four hundred and fifty years since his birth. The gritty and learned introduction does a splendid job of piecing together evidence about his life.... [Pigman's] notes too are rich and loamy. Few readers could wish to know more about the word 'discourse' than is provided by the glorious note on Gascoigne's use of the word.... Here, almost spotless, is almost anything a reader of Gascoigne could desire to know, in what must be one of the best editions of an early modern text produced in the last decade."--London Review of Books
