The Problem With Renaissance Man?

The Problem With Renaissance Man?

He knows too much.

And what does he do with this knowledge? Writes sonnets.

If there is an afterlife and I end up meeting Sidney, say in a taxi queue or something, I will be having serious words with him.

Lol - against what I said in my post, I have to agree. I think quite a lot o Astrophil and Stella is beautiful. Just Sidney is bewilderingly well read in all of the stuff that I ignore in the library.

Aah yes, lots of the Renaissance poets were. It scares me. Especially Milton, for God's sake, who would base not just their writing but their life, on a Classical writer? Argh!
