Writing after Sidney

The Literary Response to Sir Philip Sidney 1586-1640

Gavin Alexander

  • Shows how writing of the English Renaissance offered examples to later readers and writers, and how it encountered and responded to such examples itself
  • Uses a wide range of manuscript and printed sources, and key use is made of perspectives from Renaissance literary theory, especially Renaissance rhetoric
