This volume of selections from the writings of Sir Philip Sidney includes the whole of his sonnet sequence Astrophil and Stella, his Defence of Poesy, his Certain Sonnets, and substantial parts of both versions of the Arcadia. A selection of letters helps to create a complete picture of Sidney the man, and a generous assemblage of supplementary texts illustrates his inventiveness as a royal entertainer and describes the literary cult that grew up around him after his sudden death in 1586.
