Fulke Greville

$ 2.99

Believed by some to be the true author of Shakespeare’s plays, the Elizabethan poet, dramatist and statesman, Fulke Greville is best known today as the biographer of his lifelong friend Sir Philip Sidney. Greville wrote learned and sober poetry, presenting dark, thoughtful and distinctly Calvinist views on art, literature, beauty and other philosophical matters. His style is noted for its comparable force of imagination, serving as a precursor for the intellectual reasoning of John Donne and the metaphysical poets. The Delphi Poets Series offers readers the works of literature’s finest poets, with superior formatting. This volume presents Greville’s complete works, with related illustrations and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)
