Description

These three papers examine the poetics of Sir Philip Sidney's verse. Willis Salomon considers Astrophil's composite yet materially embedded identity in Astrophil and Stella in light of the complexities of early modern private and public authorship. Sally Luken brings to bear the methodologies of the digital humanities to explore the contrasts between Astrophil's persona and the personae of other contemporaneous sonnet sequences. Christian Anton Gerard seeks to shift the conversation surrounding how Sidney's Defence applies to both Astrophil and Stella and the Sidney psalter, arguing that both poetry and loving exceed any kind of formula we may seek to impose.
