ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the writing of dialogue in early English prose fiction. Most of the modern prose fiction, such as the works of George Gascoigne and Thomas Deloney, moved away from the taste for romance and instead adopted a conversationalist style that mirror the natural flow of ordinary talk. It touted realism in dialogue writing.
