Thomas Lodge's 'Phillis' is one of the lesser-known Elizabethan sonnet sequences, reprinted here in an attractive new edition.
The book includes a note on Thomas Lodge by Martha Foote Crow, illustrations, and suggestions for further reading. Each poem has a page to itself. It's a useful edition for students.
Thomas Lodge was one of the first to take up the new fashion of the sonnet-cycle, whose Phillis was published in 1595. Lodge had a wide acquaintance among the authors of his time, and was in the thick of the literary activity in the last two decades of the sixteenth century. But in spite of his interesting personality and genius, he has had to wait until the present time for full appreciation.
Illustrated. Bibliography, introduction and note. 112 pages.
