Basilus, a foolish old duke, consults an oracle as he imperiously wishes to know the future, but he is less than pleased with what he learns. To escape the oracle's horrific prophecies about his family and kingdom he withdraws into pastoral retreat with his wife and two daughters. When a pair of wandering princes fall in love with the princesses and adopt disguises to gain access to them, all manner of complications, both comic and serious, ensue. Part-pastoral romance, part-heroic epic, Sidney's long narrative work was hugely popular for centuries after its first publication in 1593, inspiring two sequels and countless imitations, and contributing greatly to the development of the novel
Silver poets of the sixteenth century by Gerald Bullett( Book )

English poetry, after the splendid summer sun of Chaucer had set, entered early into a rather wintry phase, in which a stirring of folk poetry and Skelton's odd 'flytings and vituperations' were almost the only relief. There were poets, of course, who looked back at the splendour, but their study windows were not opened until the great spring morning of the early sixteenth century when England became a land of song. It was a welcome renewal -- of language, new fancies, new conceits -- a looking into the face of nature. New learning, new culture were abroad; freshness touched the sonnets of Wyatt, Sidney, Howard and Releigh as they penned and composed this excitingly new literary form. In this garden of a world, the poets turned to love as their theme and played upon it with virtuosity -- from lines of great artistry and verbal felicity to poems of deep and true feeling

An Apology for Poetry (or The Defence of Poesy), by the celebrated soldier-poet Sir Philip Sidney, is the most important work of literary theory published in the Renaissance. Its wit and inventiveness place it among the first great literary productions of the age of Shakespeare. Since 1965 Geoffrey Shepherd's edition of the Apology has been the standard, and this revision of Shepherd's edition, with a new introduction and extensive notes, is designed to introduce Sidney's best-known work to a new generation of readers at the beginning of thetwenty-first century.Unfamiliar words and phrases are glossed, classical and other references explained, and difficult passages analysed in detail. This greatly expanded edition will be of value to all those interested in the Renaissance, from students and teachers at school and university to the inquisitive general reader
