The use of opposing elements constitutes the main grid of dramatic works, and the consolidation of antithetical forces in an array of conflicts creates unison of multiple perspectives in such works. Renaissance drama, succeeding the medieval period, predominantly hinges on the clash of antagonistic components in that dichotomies are dissolved in the end. John Lyly's Endymion, The Man in the Moon is one of the R enaissance plays in which the playwright establishes his whole work on different binary elements. This paper sets out to pinpoint three conflicting elements in terms of the use of mythology and history, the presentation of female stance and different types of love in Lyly's play.
