Selected Writings

Carcanet Press, 1987 - 178 páginas
When Sidney died, writes Richard Dutton, those who mourned him did so as a hero of Protestant Europe, a model of Christian virtue, of the Renaissance scholar-poet, of the true knight. Dutton corrects the exaggerations in the popular view, painting a human, fallible and credible figure.

Acerca del autor (1987)

Sir Philip Sidney is the first major poet-critic. His biographer, Fulke Greville, portrayed him as a model of correctness, noble bearing and heroism. Sidney was a considerable figure in his day and is still renowned for his three major literary works: The Defence of Poetry (the first great essay on poetry in English), Astrophil and Stella (one of the finest of the English sonnet sequences) and Arcadia ( a romance with a claim to be the first English novel).
