Abstract [en]

The poetry and literary theory of Sir Phillip Sidney have become a focal point for a broader investigation of the interaction between humanism and reformation. Elizabethan England, according to some literary scholars, was a battleground between these "incompatible" forces. This study seeks to modify this forced dichotomy by showing that humanism and Protestantism were not at odds. It focuses on Luther and Calvin, and demonstrates that their views on learning and human reason were more differentiated than the blanket condemnation they often are accused of. A second objective is to show that Sidney's poetics largely conform to the guidelines on reason set down by the reformers.
