Deloney, Thomas

▪ English writer
born 1543?, Norwich?, Eng.
died 1600

      writer of ballads, pamphlets, and prose stories that form the earliest English popular fiction.

      By trade a silk weaver, probably of Norwich, Deloney wrote topical ballads and, through his pamphlets, took part in religious controversy. He was proscribed in London for alleged sedition but, as an itinerant weaver and ballad seller, collected material in the provinces for his prose stories. His “many pleasant songs and pretty poems to new notes” appeared as The Garland of Good Will (1593). His Jacke of Newberie (1597), The Gentle Craft, parts i and ii (1597–c. 1598), and Thomas of Reading (1599?) furnished plots for such dramatists as Thomas Dekker. The Gentle Craft is a collection of stories, each devoted to glorifying one of the crafts: the clothiers, the shoemakers, the weavers.

      Though widely read, Deloney was condemned by the university-educated writers as a mere ballad maker and purveyor of plebeian romance, and his literary merits went unrecognized until the 20th century.
