What People are Saying About This
"The book is a delight to read, and the combination of critical edition and general introduction to the subject is an especially attractive one. Wayne offers a much-needed introduction to sixteenth-century ideologies of marriage, one that is meticulous, rigorous, and persuasive. She is the first to layout a carefully theorized reading of marriage treatises as a specific genre."
"As Wayne demonstrates in her introduction, The Flower of Friendship is a wonderfully witty dialogue treating a key issue in Tudor culture. Clearly, it is an important and revealing index to the ideology of Tudor England, a touchstone in discussions of gender relationships as they are fictionalized in Renaissance literature."
