Omschrijving

Described as the “quintessential Englishman,” the handsome and gifted Sir Philip Sidney was born into a good family. Along with writing such praised works as Arcadia, Defense of Poesie, and Astrophil and Stella, he was a courtier and a member for Kent in parliament. He was knighted in 1583 to take the place of Prince John Casimir, who was to be instated as Knight of the Garter. Soon after this, he was made governor of Flushing after being given a command in the Netherlands. In the summer of 1586, however, he died after being struck by a bullet while fighting with Sir John Norris’ forces against Zutphen. Widely admired, both the Dutch and the British wanted him to be buried in their country and at least two hundred eulogies were written for him.
