This book is the culmination of a lifetime's research into the compass of work of a major but underrated Elizabethan author. It casts new light on a figure generally regarded now as minor Elizabethan, overshadowed by his better-know friend Sir Philip Sidney. This masterly edition, through its detailed examination of texts of Greville's work, bring out his versatility as a writer in many genres; plots his restless revision of his own work; and gestures toward his enigmatic character ( as Wilkes comments, his portrait shows a conventional representation of an elegant courties - who may yet be a haunted man).
