Abstract and Keywords

This article focuses on the career of Gabriel Harvey, which simultaneously demonstrates an acute understanding of literary traditions and the desire to break free and establish new forms of writing. Harvey is all too often remembered as Thomas Nashe's victim in their pamphlet war, but there is far more to his prose than this exchange indicates, and Harvey was often as innovative as Nashe, especially in his manuscript Letter-Book.

Keywords: English prose, Thomas Nashe, prose writing, Letter-Book
