Sir Philip Sidney stands beside Shakespeare and Spenser as one of the great writers of the English Renaissance, and his masterpiece, the Arcadia, continues to delight readers with its tales of love, political intrigue, kidnap and torture, all revolving around the courtship of two Arcadian princesses by their heroic suitors. This is the first scholarly edition of the New Arcadia--Sidney's radical revision of the Old Arcadia--with modernized punctuation and spelling, an extensive commentary on the work, and a glossary.
