Dates refer to the year in which a given work was composed or, where that is unknown, when it was first published:?The Civil Wars?(1595, complete 1609), with Daniel?s dedicatory epistles to Prince Charles and the Countess of Pembroke; ?The Tragedie of Philotas?(1605), with a verse dedication to Prince Henry; ?Hymen's Triumph?(1614); ?Vlisses and the Syren?(1605); ?The Queenes Arcadia: A Pastorall Trage-Comedie?(1605) with a verse dedication to Queen Anne; The Vision of the Twelve Goddesses (1604); ?The Tragedie of Cleopatra?(1594) with a verse dedication to Mary, Countess of Pembroke, ?A Letter sent from Octavia to her husband Marcus Antonius into Egypt?(1599) with a dedicatory sonnet to Margaret, Countess Cumberland; ?Funerall Poeme: Upon the death of the Late Noble Duke of Devonshire?(1607); ?A Panegyric Congratulatory? to King James I (1603); Certain Epistles, addressed to Sir Thomas Egerton, Lord Henry Howard, Lucy, countess of Bedford, Margaret, countess of Cumberland, Lady Anne Clifford, and Henry, earl of Southampton (1601); ?Musophilus: Containing a Generall Defence of All Learning?(1599) with a verse dedication to Sir Fulke Greville; ?The Complaint of Rosamond?(1592); ?To Delia?(1592); ?A Description of Beauty, Translated out of Marino?; ?To the Angell Spirit of the Most Excellent Sr. Phillip Sidney?; ?A letter written to a worthy countesse?; ?To James Montague, Bishop of Winchester.?Samuel Daniel?s first published poetry appeared in 1591, when twenty-eight of his ?Delia? sonnets were published surreptitiously as an appendix to an unauthorized edition of Sidney?s ?Astrophel and Stella? The publication brought Daniel to the attention of Sidney?s sister Mary, the Countess of Pembroke and in the following year he dedicated to her the ?Delia? sonnets, by then fifty in number, and the narrative poem ?The Complaint of Rosamond?, an account by the ghost of Rosamond Clifford of how she was seduced by Henry II and poisoned by his queen.The Countess of Pembroke invited Daniel to join her at Wilton House, where she commissioned him to write a companion piece to her own ?Tragedy of Antony.? For his play ?The Tragedy of Cleopatra?, ?Daniel drew on the same sixteenth-century French Senecan models and conventions (a text for reading not acting, a chorus, much of the action narrated by a messenger), but he caught at something new in English, at least among the Elizabethan writers, the grace and pathos of a great woman who was suffering.?(DNB)?By 1594 Daniel had established himself as the new poet of the English dolce stile?perfect in melody, phrasing, and idiom?and as a writer whom other writers had to keep an eye on. Spenser in 1595, in ?Colin Clout's Come Home Again?, described him as surpassing everyone in sight, and Shakespeare had begun to borrow from him freely, especially for his narrative poems and sonnets?Next followed his heroic poem on the medieval civil wars fought between the houses of Lancaster and York, the impact of which ?was felt throughout the literary scene at once. This time, however, it was not just his writing that contemporaries remarked upon, but the depth and subtlety of his exposition of kingship, matters of state, and the causes of rebellion. Shakespeare was drawing on it for aspects of Richard II within weeks of the poem going on sale (probably November. Bookseller Inventory #
