The first comprehensive biography of Henry Howard, this book fills a major gap in the history of early modern British culture. Sessions's narrative combines historical scholarship with close readings of poetic texts and Tudor paintings to reveal the unique life of the first Renaissance courtier and a poet who wrote and created radically new forms (such as the English sonnet and blank verse).

Review:

"Intriguing...gives ample analysis of Surrey's verse and its importance to English letters...[Sessions attempts] to write more than just a literary biography, he wants to re-create the mentalite of Surrey and his world"
