A Protestant Zenith

“Pointing the way to these heights more clearly than any of the works hitherto discussed is the poetic version of the Psalms produced by Sir Philip Sidney and his sister, Mary Herbert, Countess of Pembroke. As contemporary references to them demonstrate, though these psalms were not published for over two centuries, they were well known to the extensive literary and court circles of these great families” (Lewalski, Protestant Poetics, p. 241).
