Entries reproduce original texts unless otherwise stated, except that i/j and u/v have been regularized and contractions mostly expanded. References to Sidney’s works are to the Oxford editions listed above. This means that where the authors of entries are in fact quoting from or alluding to the 1593 composite Arcadia, I have supplied references to the equivalent passages in the Oxford editions of The Old Arcadia and The New Arcadia. Most readers will find any resulting inconvenience outweighed by the advantages of being directed to the most reliable and usefully annotated modern texts.
References to the works and to Beal are given where possible in parentheses in the body of the text.
