Deloney, Thomas


(also Delone). Born circa 1543 in London; died 1600. English writer. Worked as a weaver.

Deloney was the author of ballads on historical and everyday topics and of novels about the lives of artisans: Jack of Newberie (1597, published in 1619; Russian translation, 1926), The Gentle Craft (1598), and Thomas of Reading, or The Sixe Worthie Yeomen of the West (published in 1612; Russian translation, 1926). The significance of his novels lies in their democratic tendencies and interesting sketches of everyday life.
