Sir Phiilip Sidney: The Maker's Mind

Dorothy Connell, 1977 - 163 Seiten

 Making use of a new appreciation of Sidney's proto-novel The Old Arcadia (1580) and a rare 1579 letter newly discovered by this famous Elizabethan courtier, poet and writer, Dr Connell uses contemporary maps by Ortelius and other historical sources to bring to life the politics and art of Sidney and his circle throughout Europe. The Old Arcadia was his first substantial work, and this can be fruitfully compared to his more famous New Arcadia (written in 1586  and left incomplete at his death); this last was published in the 1590s by his sister Mary at a period when it strongly influenced Shakespeare and other writers of the later Elizabethan age.
