By: Blair Worden
Philip Sidney`s Arcadia is much more than a pleasant pastoral fiction, Worden reveals in this book. Arcadia is also a grave and urgent commentary on Elizabethan politics. Worden transforms our understanding of Sidney`s masterpiece with a fresh approach that shows how the dramatic historic, political, and religious events of the era influenced Sidney`s work.
