Copyright violation[edit]

I unfortunately removed a vast amount of data that was added by an anon editor. It seemed to be from an academic paper, with multiple footnotes, and I noticed that it contained citations from the 1980s. I did not look for the text to determine if it was available online or not. I reverted this to a page prior to the addition of this material and added the copyvio notice. If the anon editor is in fact the author, this can be undone, but this needs to be made with explicit permission (and you probably should have a login ID as well.)

Added the Kingdom of Hungary[edit]

For gods' sakes, it's mentioned in the Defense of Poesy, whereas Austria and all that jazz are not. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 84.2.67.160 (talk) 10:59, 22 May 2010 (UTC)

References in the sentences[edit]

Wouldn't this article look much nicer if the references in the sentences were moved to footnotes. 128.250.217.20 06:04, 29 March 2006 (UTC)

Defence of Posey[edit]

the present comments on "defense of poesy" is clearly a revenge of prose against Philip Sidney's radical position against philosophy and history. None of the assertions can stand a quotation of Sidney's own words. Above all the reduction of this extremely deep text to "neo-platonism" is an illustration of Sidney's allegoric image of prosaic insinuations out of poets eggs immediatly cannibalize its genitors.

I think that the final three sections (Influence, Significance, and On Method) should be formed into a new page and simply linked to this Sidney page. I'd do it right away, but I'm not sure which references go to which section. Tell me what you think on my page, please. Scoutersig 16:18, 2 October 2006 (UTC)

Main character in a work of fiction[edit]

It happens to be a fact that Philip Sidney is one of the main characters (if not the main character) in The Armor of Light by Melissa Scott and Lisa A. Barnett. I am quite not up to speed on what the correct way to mention that in the article would be, but surely it deserves a nod of some sort or another. -- Cimon Avaro; on a pogostick. 11:41, 12 June 2007 (UTC)

-->You're right, and I added that information. I think it fits nicely into the "Pop culture" section. Popslashgirl (talk) 18:35, 8 October 2008 (UTC)

monty python[edit]

No mention of the python sketch featuring michael palin as sir philip sidney. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.40.206.42 (talk) 19:04, 18 October 2008 (UTC)

Sidney's funeral[edit]

http://wiki.umd.edu/psidney/index.php?title=Main_Page

It is not clear if this is one of the most magnificent funeral processions of the time or merely one of the best documented. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Fotoguzzi (talkcontribs) 18:44, 28 May 2009 (UTC)

Poor Quality[edit]

B-class??? As it stands, this "article" has almost nothing to to with poetry. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.43.174.211 (talk) 22:08, 7 September 2010 (UTC)
