Book Summary

Whitney's two volumes of verse miscellany, "Sweet Nosegay" (1573) and "The Copy of a Letter" (1567), were part of a literary trend of combining classical and Biblical references with vernacular sources. As well a selection of her original poetry, this volume includes Mary Sidney's version of the Psalms of David and Petrach's "Triumph of Death".

Whitney's two volumes of verse miscellany, "Sweet Nosegay" (1573) and "The Copy of a Letter" (1567), were part of a literary trend of combining classical and Biblical references with popular and vernacular sources, and reflect the growing literary appetites of the urban population. As well a selection of her original poetry, this volume includes Sidney's version of the Psalms of David and Petrach's "Triumph of Death". Lanyer's poetry is devotional and is the most single-minded and explicit in its advocacy of female spirituality and virtue. Included here are "Salve Deus Rex Judaeorum" and "The Description of Cooke-ham". short..
