Euphuistic Style:


Aside from content, the style of the Reply deserves some comment, for it is the style that Lodge uses in all of his later prose. This style had its progenitor in John Lyly, who was supposedly a friend of Gosson’s. Lyly’s Euphues (1578) brought to English Literature a style so distinctive that it is called euphuistic. Lodge’s Reply is somewhat more sparing of its style; he preserves in all of his prose works what is best in Lyly---the balance, alliteration, and parallelism.
