Description

In this examination of Sir Philip Sidney, author of the famous romance "The Countess of Pembroke's Arcadia", and his family, Elizabeth Mazzola argues that families are a form of poetic projects. The Sidney family, and members of the so called "Sidney circle" aimed to celebrate Sir Philip's life through literary tradition - they repeatedly turned to writing their own poetry as a vehicle to analyse or extend familial connections. Mazzola illustrates that Sidney's family, by celebrating the work of their brilliant loved one, actually demonstrated the unique attributes and transformation of the family in the early modern period.
