Robert Greene (11 July 15583 September 1592) was an English author best known today for his pamphlet Greene's Groats-Worth of Wit, containing a polemic attack on William Shakespeare. He was born in Norwich and attended Cambridge University, receiving a BA in 1580, and a MA in 1583 before moving to London, where he arguably became the first professional author in England. Greene published in many genres including autobiography, plays, and romances, while capitalizing on a scandalous reputation.
