Writing after Sidney: The Literary Response to Sir Philip Sidney, 1586-1640

Note on Spelling, References,
and Abbreviations

In quotations, use of i/j, u/v, and ß has been brought into line with modern practice…ave in most cases silently lowered raised letters and expanded contractions and abbreviations, including ampersands. References to classical texts are to the editions in the Loeb Classical Library series unless otherwise stated.

In naming Sidney's works one also faces dilemmas…ave followed Ringler, for convenience rather than from conviction, in referring to Astrophil and Stella rather than to Astrophel and Stella…efer not to An Apology for Poetry (the title of the unauthorized 1595 printing) or to A Defence of Poetry (a title invented in the Clarendon edition) but to The Defence of Poesy (the title with which Sidney's work appeared in its authorized 1595 printing and all subsequent reprintings). Reference to the Arcadia is often misleading. There is no such thing as the Old Arcadia or the New Arcadia and many students and scholars labour under the misapprehension that The Countess of Pembroke's Arcadia (the
