Abstract

This essay considers the complex styles of Marston's play in relation to his own verse satires, and the epigrams of his contemporaries, in particular Sir John Davies and Everard Guilpin. It distinguishes between the styles of Elizabethan satire and epigram to suggest that The Dutch Courtesan is more endebted to the latter than is usually thought.
