Cyril Tourneur’s only noteworthy work in addition to his plays is The Transformed Metamorphosis (1600), an obscure allegorical verse satire on religion in a metaphysical style. He also wrote three elegiac works on prominent figures. A few short prose works and occasional verses, signed only “C. T.,” have been attributed to him without further evidence of his authorship.
