Discussing authors as diverse in time and type as Sir Fulke Greville, Christopher Hill, Charles Lamb, Edmund Waller, and Thomas Warton the elder, Richard Hillyer analyzes Sir Philip Sidney’s reputation from his own day to the present.  More important than how Sidney’s works have fared over many centuries’ worth of critical fashion, Hillyer argues, is how Sidney’s versatility as a “Renaissance man” has elicited varying degrees of wonder, incomprehension, and skepticism.  Even when least appreciated as an author, he has remained a cultural icon, a prominent figure on the landscapes of English culture and literature, and an influence that later authors and commentators have continued to address.

About the Author:

Richard Hillyer is Assistant Professor at The University of South Alabama.  He is the author of Hobbes and His Poetic Contemporaries: Cultural Transmission in Early Modern England, as well as essays on Thomas Hobbes, Ben Jonson, the Royal Society, and Edmund Waller.

Review:

“An absolutely fascinating subject, and researched with rigor.  It is truly amazing how many sources Hillyer has explored, and how many references to Sidney he has discovered.  The stakes of the various portraits of Sidney are clear, which makes for a compelling read.  Sir Philip Sidney, Cultural Icon attests brilliantly to something we all believe: that literature from the past is not dead, but is continually and necessarily being remade.”—Michael Schoenfeldt, Professor of English, University of Michigan
