The author discusses the strategies used by poet George Gascoigne to preserve lyric poetry. The author references the work "A Hundreth Sundrie Flowres" written by Gascoigne. He notes that critics have focused attention on Gascoigne's multiplicity, primarily by examining the differences between the 1573 and 1575 editions. In addition, the author indicates that although Gascoigne's work continually explores the connection between bodily and textual delight, and their preservation, Gascoigne also uses delight in its most conventional sense.
