Elizabethan Literature

A new thread for the fans of Elizabethan Literature (1558-1603) following on from some intelligent, merited but off slightly off topic posts on 'The Establishment Party' thread.

Rob Kent, Dylan and anyone else interested...knock yourselves out!

That's crap because it excludes me from making light of Deciderius Erasmus' work and Geoffrey Chaucer's as they both preceed the dates set by the Mod5 and I wouldn't want to wobble off topic!

But I can get in a very good topical comment from Richard Hooker!

"Evil ministers of good things are as torches,--a light to others, a waste to none but themselves only."

Elizabethan is encompassed by Early Modern which follows on the heels (galls the kibes) of Renaissance, so it's probably okay.

So, kick off with your bons mots... (these are not going to be Chaucerian farting jokes are they?)
