My only disappointments with the book are that Duncan-Jones hardly deals at all with Sidney's sister Mary, an interesting person in her own right and crucial to Sidney's life and after-life; and the decision not to talk about the funeral and the fate of Leicester and the Netherlands afterwards. She wittily displays the long visual portrayal of the funeral along the end pages of the book, but some accompanying text would have been nice.

This is an excellent biography, covering both the life in extensive detail, and the poetry. Contrary to the legend, it is clear from the biography that Sidney struggled throughout his life with all kinds of disappointment as well as ill treatment from the Queen, the dry fountain. It is all really kind of a sad mess in the midst of knightly splendour. But what a great writer.

My only disappointments with the book are that Duncan-Jones hardly deals at all with Sidney's sister Mary, an interesting person in her own right and crucial to Sidney's life and after-life; and the decision not to talk about the funeral and the fate of Leicester and the Netherlands afterwards. She wittily displays the long visual portrayal of the funeral along the end pages of the book, but some accompanying text would have been nice.
