Lyhyt elämäkerta
Sir Philip Sidney was the eldest son of Sir Henry Sidney and his wife Lady Mary Dudley, the sister of Robert Dudley, 1st Earl of Leicester, longtime favorite of Queen Elizabeth I. He was close to his own younger sister, Mary Sidney, who became Countess of Pembroke, and he dedicated his 1580 pastoral romance The Countess of Pembroke's Arcadia -- also known as The Acadia -- to her. His other works included a sonnet sequence, Astrophel and Stella, and a treatise called The Defence of Poesy (also known as The Defence of Poesie or An Apology for Poetrie). In 1583, he was knighted, and he married Frances Walsingham, daughter of the queen's spymaster and Secretary of State, Sir Francis Walsingham. Sir Philip Sidney was considered one of the Elizabethan Age's most romantic and noble figures. Well-known during his life for his poetry and gallantry as a courtier and soldier, he became even more famous after his death in the Battle of Zutphen at age 31.

It's not true that poetry better than philosophy.

I've been looking forward to reading this work for years after dropping it once due to the complexity of the prose that made it too challenging for good old me. Ironically I am dropping it once again because I found the text subpar in terms of content and style, and after reading a variety of works written by pastoral authors I can assert that this novel is nothing more than a product of the Elizabethan society under the guise of a bucolic romance, a wannabe Sannazaro's Arcadia loaded with petty moralism and anecdotes about virtue and sin all too divorced from the real intent of the pastoral genre. Despite the impressive length of his work, Sidney drops the facade quite early in the novel and has no qualms about slapping 17th century quirks and literary tropes in his romance, which leaves us with a disappointing pseudo-historical Renaissance soap opera where respecting the importance of historical accuracy doesn't even cross the mind of the author. If this novel was written solely for entertainment purposes, it failed to deliver even that.… (lisätietoja)

While the Defence of Poesy is still required reading for most English majors, I think it should be a required text in high school. Sidney still has so much to offer us in his most exquisite examination of poetry, often giving us words to live by. This is the best edition from what I can tell and is generally the one referred to in criticism. He died as he wished he had lived--not a poet, but a soldier.
