Gassner's Reviews: 5. Early Tudor drama owed much to both medieval morality plays and classical models. Ralph Roister Doister (c) by Nicholas Udall and Gammer Gurton's Needle (c) are considered the first English comedies, combining elements of classical Roman comedy with native burlesque. Recuyell of the Historyes of Troye or Recueil des Histoires de Troye () is a translation by William Caxton of a French courtly romance written by Raoul Lefèvre, chaplain to Philip III, Duke of was the first book printed in the English language.

This book offers a new interpretation of the transition from Catholicism to Protestantism in the English Reformation, and explores its implications for an understanding of women and gender.
