This selected edition of the writings of Mary Sidney Herbert, countess of Pembroke, is intended to illustrate the impressive range and quality of her literary endeavors by means of readily accessible modern-spelling texts, with introductions and commentaries specifically aimed at the needs of the student or general reader. It includes the full text of her original poems, Antonius, The Triumph of Death, thirty one of her metrical Psalms, and selections from her prose, as well as supplemental materials to demonstrate how she revised her own work, and how her compositions circulated among her contemporaries in both print and manuscript.
