In this fine volume, Henry Richard Fox Bourne captures the life of Sir Philip Sidney, (Nov. 30, 1554-Oct. 17, 1586), who was an Elizabethan courtier, statesman, soldier, poet, and patron of scholars and poets, considered the ideal gentleman of his day. After Shakespeare’s sonnets, Sidney’s Astrophel and Stella is considered the finest Elizabethan sonnet cycle. His The Defence of Poesie introduced the critical ideas of Renaissance theorists to England.
