Written in the late sixteenth century, at the pinnacle of the English Renaissance, the rich and ingenious works of Thomas Nashe uniquely reveal the ambivant nature of the Elizabethan era. Mingling the devout and the bawdy, scholarship and slang, they express throughout an irrepressible, inexhaustible wit and an astonishing command of language. This collection of Nashe’s finest works includes ‘The Unfortunate Traveller’, the sharp and grotesque tale of Jack Wilton, an Englishman travelling through Europe.
