The Allegory of Wisdom in Lyly's Endimion


In lieu of an abstract, the first paragraph of the essay follows:

John Lyly's Endimion: The Man in the Moon is considered by many scholars to be either an allegory of love or a political allegory.1 While these interpretations provide certain insights into Endimion, they do not explain adequately the intriguing references to knowledge that appear throughout the play. I suggest that Endimion is an allegory of wisdom.
