Overview

As Robert Sidney spent his career at the court of Queen Elizabeth, these letters are interesting not only for the substantial story they reveal of the writer and his wife (her letters have not survived) and their lives, but also for what they tell of life at the court, its politics, Sidney's relationship with Elizabeth (not always happy), and the heavy burden of life there for a courtier. The editors, Hannay (Siena College), Noel J. Kinnamon (Mars Hill College), and Michael G. Brennan (U. of Leeds, UK), provide an introduction to the collection as well as annotation of the letters. The letters are presented in slightly modernized form (spelling is regularized and abbreviations noted but expanded to full words) and are accessible to the student as well as the scholar.
