Sidney’s The Seven Wonders of England

Standard

Sir Philip Sidney, pure poet, soldier, and cup bearer to Queen Elizabeth, wrote the Seven Wonders of England during his mid-twenties. It is a trance-like meditation on an almost supernatural, and unrequited, love spell. A multi-talented prodigy of the English Renaissance, Sidney did not place a high priority on his literary effort for a man so gifted with the lyric touch. A few of the notes included in the PDF link are from the Oxford World’s Classics’, Sir Philip Sidney’s The Major Works.
