ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the book "The Adventures of Master F.J.," by George Gascoigne. In the book, Gascoigne has introduced to prose fiction new ways of narrating, such as the short allegory, the letter and the use of a judicious editor as a narrator. The book has demonstrated the possibilities for multiple narrative devices within one piece of prose fiction. Critics have been quite willing to look at the book as fiction singular in its own time, existing without contemporary models.
